There is apparently a “Training Day” prequel in the works.

Collider reported the following details on the possible prequel from Warner Brothers:

Sources tell Collider that the prequel will be set nearly a decade earlier in late April of 1992 — two days before the Rodney King verdict was delivered. Los Angeles was already a powder keg just waiting to explode that week, and the verdict led to the L.A. riots.

The Training Day prequel will follow a younger version of Alonzo Harris, a career-defining role that brought Washington his second Oscar, and his first as a lead.

My friends, let’s get ready to roll! Let’s get ready to roll! This is awesome. “Training Day” will forever be one of the coolest movies ever made. (RELATED: The Trailer For ‘Westworld‘ Season 3 Has Been Released. It’s Absolutely Insane)

I’ve probably watched Denzel Washington as Alonzo Harris 15 times. I love the movie so much that I keep a DVD of the film on my desk.

That’s right, folks. I keep a DVD of the film where I can see it everyday. It helps me carry out every day with the energy Ethan Hawke and Denzel did in the hit film.

Now, we might be getting a prequel set in the early 1990s. If that doesn’t have you ready to run through a wall, then you just don’t know great content when you see it.

We all know what he did in the original film.

Now, obviously, a lot of things could go wrong before this hits theaters, and I think there’s a high chance we won’t be seeing Denzel.

That’s okay. As long as it’s as badass as the original, I think fans will be just fine.
