Antoine Fuqua in negotiations to direct hot spec script 'Prisoners'

Posted on

Training Day helmer Antoine Fuqua is in final negotiations to direct Prisoners from hot new writer Aaron Guzikowski. Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment will produce the film. Prisoners centers on a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, the man takes the law into his own hands and runs up against the big-city detective assigned to the case. The script had been making the rounds across Hollywood and at one point Mark Wahlberg had expressed interest in producing and starring. That is no longer the case but with the studio setting October 22, 2010 as the release date, casting this actioner will certainly be an imperative.
