Fuqua will wear ‘Jacket’

Mandalay, Clooney, Soderbergh to produce

“Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua is trying on “The Jacket” for Paramount.

Fuqua is in negotiations to helm the drama of a falsely imprisoned man who learns how to see into the future and tries to change his fate.

Producers on “The Jacket” include Mandalay Films and partners George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh through their Warner Bros.-based Section Eight banner.

Fuqua’s profile as an action director has risen since “Training Day” received Academy Award nominations this year for Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, with the former ultimately winning the actor Oscar. He directed and was a producer on Revolution’s military rescue drama “Tears of the Sun,” which stars Bruce Willis and wrapped this summer.

Fuqua is attached to the Robert Ludlum adaptation “The Sigma Protocol,” for producer Paul L. Sandberg, along with “Bloods” for Castle Rock and “White Out” for Gaylord and Warner Bros.
