Director Antoine Fuqua Tapped to Helm New Line’s ‘Chicagoland’

Antoine Fuqua is looking to get back to the type of film that made him famous, as the “Training Day” director beat out a handful of directors to enter negotiations to helm “Chicagoland” at New Line. Peter Morgan penned the script, with Simon Kinberg on board to produce.
