http://www.empireonline.co.uk/site/news/newsstory.asp?news_id=17058 Training Day director Antoine Fuqua lines up his next film 23 August 2005 Antoine Fuqua is in negotiations to direct a new film and it sounds like a doozy. By Any Means Necessary is a new action adventure film, with what sounds to us like a bit of a Silence of the Lambs twist. The story centres on a law enforcement agency desperate to prevent a terrorist attack that they believe is coming. The key to stopping the terrorists, however, lies with a convicted mobster, and they must convince the jailed wiseguy to help them out against this new threat. There's the potential for two things here. First, there could be a thoughtful and interesting examination of the price of combating terrorism and the new world order. Secondly, there could be a mismatched cop-and-crook couple running around after a bomb, as time ticks away. However, with a script by The Manchurian Candidate's Dan Pyne, we can hope for a healthy dollop of the former in among the latter. As for Fuqua, he's had a run of bad luck of late. His 2001 film Training Day propelled him onto the A-list, but after that came the just-OK Tears of the Sun and the not-as-good-as-we-hoped King Arthur - not to mention his cancelled plans to reteam with Denzel Washington to make drug drama Superfly (aka Tru Blue). But between this and the Mel Gibson film Under And Alone, about an undercover officer working with motorcycle gangs, things could finally be going his way. We'll keep you up to date as we learn more.
