    A prequel to Antoine Fuqua’s 2001 Academy Award-winning crime drama “Training Day” is now in the works at Warner Bros. According to Collider’s Jeff Sneider, the prequel penned by Black List scribe Nick Yarborough will take place in Los Angeles in 1992 just two days before the Rodney King verdict, in which LAPD officers were acquitted of charges of the brutal beating of King, rocked the city and divided its citizens. This would set the film just on the eve of the LA Riots that followed. The riots, which turned Los Angeles into a fiery war zone that left nearly no neighborhood unscathed, lasted nearly a week — and changed the face of the city forever. No word yet on any additional cast or crew attached to the upcoming “Training Day” prequel.

    According to Sneider, the prequel will center on a younger version of Alonzo Harris, the shady, off-the-books narcotics detective played by Denzel Washington in Antoine Fuqua’s original film, which ultimately won Washington the Best Actor Academy Award in 2002, his second after 1989’s “Glory.” The 2001 film also earned Ethan Hawke a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as officer Jake Hoyt, a fledgling detective taken warily under Alonzo’s wing. “Training Day” took place across a 12-hour time period as Alonzo and Hoyt navigated the crime-addled neighborhoods of Los Angeles.

    Idk if I should be in for this or nah :thinkinghmmm:

    You watch way too many movies and Netflix series. You do know the government wants your eyes glued to the tv watching Netflix, instead of preparing yourself for what’s happening in the states and Democrats trying to turn our country into Nazi Germany. No wonder you have the mysterious mind that gets under my skin sometimes. I haven’t watched a movie in years.

    You smartass. You 2 liking his posts, you better unlike it or you’re on my list for my next video. Bruh, you’re lucky I took a few Valium while drinking alcohol with a few friends tonight. Or I’d slaughter you right now. But I have a damn counseling appointment tomorrow and can’t say I drank on top of benzos because she gives me a talking to. Then I have to go to physical therapy for my back. Why don’t you feel bad for me at all man? After all the shit you put me through since SL.

    And Netflix is only 10 a month lol Who couldn’t afford that. You can YouTube it for proof but the government wants your eyes glued to it, in all seriousness. And bitch, I have direct tv. Not shitty cable. You better send me a good rrrport soon after all the shit Roy said r me recently, out of respect for me chief

    I don’t drink anymore. Except last night i ended up drinking on top of my Benzos late in the steeler game. And @Worm made me furious tbh irl over that picture of choose glass or Cole and the alligator with a pirates hat on had a fork about to stick into the outlet. I had to go against him anyway i could. My bad though. Drinking caused that last night.
