Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua are to team up for the first time since making Training Day together to tell the story of bigtime New York heroin dealer FRANK LUCAS.

Fuqua will direct OSCAR winner Washington in THE RETURN OF SUPERFLY towards the end of this year (04).

Lucas became the biggest heroin dealer in Harlem during the height of his infamy by smuggling the drug out of south east Asia in the caskets of American soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.

The kingpin eventually turned good by helping narcotics enforcer RICHIE ROBERTS track down drug lords within the New York police force.
