Quibi, the upcoming mobile-only streaming platform that’s offering its content in short bursts (aka “quick bites”), has been making headlines for its outlandish show concepts, like one in which model/actress/internet celebrity Chrissy Teigen serves as a court judge or a cooking show in which blindfolded contestants are shot in the face with the foods they must use to win the competition. But Quibi is making its own movies, too – and they’ve hired some top talent to participate.
Check out the trailer for one of the streaming service’s first “movies in chapters” called #FreeRayshawn, which is executive produced by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) and stars Stephan James (Homecoming) and Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix). Read More »

In what has to be one of the biggest examples of downgrading ever, the Antoine Fuqua film Infinite is set to replace Chris Evans with Mark Wahlberg. Evans just recently dropped out of the acton thriller, and Wahlberg is now in talks to take over his role in the film about near-immortal men and women reincarnated over the centuries.

Rather than take a long vacation, the actor is already looking for new projects – one of which is the sci-fi film Infinite, based on the novel The Reincarnationist Papers.

If we’re lucky, Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington will make Equalizer movies until the end of days. In a sea of +100 million dollar franchises, Fuqua and Washington are making a series unlike any other in major theaters right now. No franchise star today is as hard-hitting, violent, and as well-spoken as Robert McCall (Denzel Washington), whose eloquent threats and promises of vengeance are as crowd-pleasing as his fighting skills.
But don’t call this Equalizer series a franchise or blockbuster to Fuqua, because he’s more interested in telling a good standalone story than making a sequel that’s really just a bit more of the same. Like Washington, Fuqua had opportunities to make prequels and sequels, for both Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen, but they never made sense to him. The world of Robert McCall, on the other hand, was rich enough for the filmmaker to continue to McCall’s journey.
Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with the always passionate Fuqua to discuss The Equalizer 2, working with Denzel Washington for the fourth time, Miami Vice, and even his fond memory of working with Prince.
