Denzel is Superfly

03.16.2004

Denzel has a plan to stick it to the man. The Oscar-winning actor will reunite with his TRAINING DAY director Antoine Fuqua for the cops/drugs drama THE RETURN OF SUPERFLY. Unfortunately it's not a sequel to the 1972 blaxploitation flick (or a remake of the 1990 sequel to the 1972 original) but a true life story about Frank Lucas, who at one time was the biggest heroin dealer in Harlem. The film follows a cop who struggles to take Lucas down and their eventual collaboration bringing down a ring of corrupt cops and overseas druglords. Steven Zaillian (SCHINDLER'S LIST) wrote the script based on an article that originally ran in New York Magazine. Imagine Entertainment and Brian Grazer will produce the film for Universal. SUPERFLY could be the next project for both Washington and Fuqua should the deal go through. Washington can be seen next in MAN ON FIRE this April and later this summer in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE. Fuqua also has a release this summer - Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer's big KING ARTHUR epic - you know the one I mean. The one with Keira Knightley wearing nothing but a leather strap.
