The announcement of the multi-film collaboration comes on the heels of the streaming premiere of The Guilty, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, and has garnered rave reviews.
According to the partnership, Fuqua will execute the agreement under his recently renamed production banner Hill District Media, from the previously titled Fuqua Films.
In an official statement, Fuqua expressed his excitement about his partnership with Netflix.
“Working with Netflix on The Guilty was such a rewarding experience, both from an artistic and collaborative point of view,” Fuqua said. “I’m beyond excited to continue this relationship and expand our slate of films with a partner that shares our vision at Hill District Media.”
“Antoine is an impactful storyteller who believes art can create meaningful change in the world,” said Tendo Nagenda, VP Netflix Film. “We had a great collaboration with him on The Guilty and look forward to telling many more stories together in the future.”
Fuqua’s past credits include classics such as Training Day, Shooter, and the Equalizer franchise. Also, he directed the highly-anticipated Emancipation which was picked up by Apple for a record-breaking $130 million and stars Will Smith.
Currently, Fuqua is executive producing on the Paramount Plus series Mayor of Kingstown as well as the upcoming film Bullet Train which stars Brad Pitt.
