The film's director Antoine Fuqua has signed on to executive produce and direct the new project, which is slated to pick up 15 years after the movie left off.

The original Training Day followed a rookie Los Angeles Police Department cop played by Ethan Hawke, who was paired with Washington's rogue detective.

It has yet to be revealed if both Hawke and Washington, who earned an Oscar for the role, are involved in the TV adaptation.
