Antoine Fuqua is one busy guy. After a lull in films after the lackluster TEARS OF THE SUN and KING ARTHUR, Fuqua came back strong with OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN and this year's THE EQUALIZER. With THE EQUALIZER already being prepped for a sequel and Fuqua linked to a MAGNIFICENT SEVEN remake, Deadline is also linking the filmmaker to the drug thriller NARCO SUB.

Previously set as a vehicle for the late Tony Scott, rumors has EDGE OF TOMORROW director Doug Liman in talks to helm the movie. With those negotiations gone, Fuqua has stepped up to take on the project. 20th Century Fox has been trying to get the film made for a while and now it looks like David Guggenheim's script will finally get to the big screen.

Itís set in the dangerous world of drug smuggling and the title refers to the semi-submersible crafts that South American drug cartels have been using to ship cocaine into the U.S. without having to deal with land-based authorities.

Ridley Scott will still produce his late brother's passion project through their Scott Free banner. There is no word on any potential casting decisions for the film, but stay tuned. Hopefully NARCO SUB will happen sooner than later.

Love the concept; maybe it could have a Captain Phillips vibe to it.

The cast for this is going to be awesome. He always gets great casts for his films.

And Tears of the Sun, and King Arthur are both very underrated films.

Looking forward and are you kidding me?!...

Down me all you want I loved Tears of the Sun, King Arthur is quite good as well...a young Edgerton and the always enigmatic Mr. Winstone within an awesome cast!
Mr. Fuqua could be the heir apparent to the late Tony Scott and I am A.O.K. with that...

sorry guys

But Fuqua's King Arthur is one of my favorites. I've never understood the hate for the film. The directors cut is awesome. I'm all always down for a Fuqua flick!

If Fuqua is directing this, I''ll definitely give this a watch, and I think King Arthur is underrated.

This guy made Training Day. And he directed the fuck out of that one. So drugs, crime, and a smuggling submarine? I'll definitely watch that.
