Nick Yarborough, a screenwriter, was picked to write the script.
The film, which was written by David Ayer and directed by Antoine Fuqua, went on to become a huge hit with fans and grossed more than $100 million at the box office.
Collider is even suggesting a possibility that Washington's son, BlacKkKlansman star John David Washington, now leading the new Christopher Nolan movie Tenet for Warner Bros, could potentially step into the role.
The King verdict sparked the LA Riots, which erupted after a mostly white jury acquitted four police officers accused in the videotaped beating of King on the roadside, after he fled from police. No director has been attached to the film.
Training Day earned a lot of positive reviews and accolades, including Denzel Washington winning the Best Actor Oscar and earning a Golden Globe nomination in the same category, and Ethan Hawke being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. There is also still no word on any of the producers, unfortunately the original producer Bobby Newmyer passed away in 2005.
A prequel to acclaimed crime drama Coaching Day is reportedly being developed by Warner Bros.
While Washington is highly unlikely to return to for the prequel, the original report suggests that his son, John David, who starred in last year's BlacKKKlansman and the upcoming Christopher Nolan blockbuster Tenet, could be a good fit to take on the role.
Something interesting to point out about this project is the timeline as Washington was 46 when the film was released.
The 35-year-old actor is now shooting the lead role in Christopher Nolan's "Tenet", which is also being made by Warner Bros. Once Denzel Washington accepted the role of Alonzo instead, the actor allegedly asked for Guggenheim to be replaced. Let us know in the comment section below!
