Antoine Fuqua is a multi-talented man to say the least. Attending West Virginia with a basketball scholarship, he studied electrical engineering (focusing on electromagnetism and signal processing), went on to dabble as a Golden Gloves boxer, and finally ended his diverse journey by becoming a Hollywood director – and a damn fine one at that. You know him from Training Day, Shooter, Tears of the Sun, King Arthur, Brooklyn’s Finest, and his newest film Olympus Has Fallen once it hits theaters March 22nd.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Fuqua in New York while attending the Olympus Has Fallen press day, joining a small handful of other journalists for an intimate question and answer session. Read on to hear Antoine talk about his experiences working with such a loaded cast, the grittiness he so wanted to achieve with his action, and his experiences working with trained government professionals. »
