Antoine Fuqua Circling Historical Action Epic, THE DEVIL SOLDIER
Antoine Fuqua has had a notable run with Sony’s hit entries with The Equalizer and its latest sequel, and time will tell if the prospects turn better for a currently-developing remake of classic gangster opus, Scarface. For now, Deadline‘s most recent coverage on the director has him based at ADME Studios as word of an adaptation of Caleb Carr’s 1995 historical novel, The Devil Soldier, is in the works.
Penguin Random House describes the publication as follows: With the same flair for history and narrative that distinguished his bestseller, The Alienist, Caleb Carr tells the incredible story of Frederick Townsend Ward, the American mercenary who fought for the emperor of China in the Taiping rebellion, history’s bloodiest civil war. The Devil Soldier is a thrilling, masterfully researched biography of the kind of adventurer the world no longer sees.
Fuqua is partnering with Dog Eat Dog producer Mark Earl Burman, and executive producers, Artist International Group CEO David Unger and ADME’s Scott Powell.
