Antoine Fuqua: My First Big Break

So what happens when you take a kid from Pittsburgh, PA, put him in the wrong place at the wrong time, sprinkle in some college basketball, a little Caravaggio, some Akira Kurosawa and a few rap music videos?

Antoine Fuqua, whose latest film “Olympus Has Fallen” shows D.C. and the White House in various stages of disarray, recently sat down with mediabistroTV and told the crew how the odd mix of bad luck, athletics, an acclaimed Japanese director, and the influence of a 16th century bad boy Italian painter led him to a career as one of Hollywood’s premiere action film directors.

Olympus Has Fallen” opens in theaters March 22.
