Someone’s earned the right to be bitch-slapped — thanks to CBS’ latest pilot order.
The network is developing a reboot of Training Day — the movie that earned an Oscar win for Denzel Washington, and a nomination for Ethan Hawke — to be executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman (CSI), Antoine Fuqua and Castle scribe Will Beall, the network announced Monday.
The logline for the pilot — which, like the movie, will be directed by Fuqua — is as follows: In this reimagining that begins 15 years after the film left off, an idealistic young African-American police officer is appointed to an elite squad of the LAPD where he is partnered with a seasoned, morally ambiguous Caucasian detective.
