Fuqua explains what attracted  him to the script of  Brooklyn's Finest (the story of Job); how he was able to shoot it for under $20 million on location and to get director's cut, his fascination with journalism, and his long-time desire to work with Wesley Snipes. He says his research for the film led to the discovery that more police officers commit suicide violently than die in the line of duty.
