Training Day Director Antoine Fuqua Talks The Moment He Knew He’d Caught Lightning In A Bottle With Denzel Washington

Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington have been a profitable duo in Hollywood for almost two decades. Most of their team-ups have been huge successes, from Training Day to the Equalizer franchise. But at one point, Fuqua was a music video director-turned-feature director just starting to make waves in the film industry. The then-rising movie director’s style caught the attention of Washington, leading to them working on the Oscar-nominated Training Day. And the Training Day director spoke recently about the moment he knew the consistent collaborators caught lightning in a bottle.

While the The Magnificent Seven director is renowned for his visual storytelling, Washington first noticed Fuqua’s skills in the cult classic The Replacement Killers. Upon seeing the action thriller, the two-time Oscar winner knew he and the young director would become “a good combination.” Upon looking back on the longtime partnership, the action-oriented filmmaker revealed to THR that he knew early on Training Day would be a success before it hit theaters.
