Chadwick Boseman has set his next project.
For STXFilms, he’ll star in the action thriller 17 Bridges from Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Infinity War).
The film centers on a New York Police Department detective (Boseman) “who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.”
Boseman will also produce the film, along with his writing and producing partner Logan Coles.
The Russo Brothers will also produce under their new AGBO banner, along with AGBO’s Mike Larocca.
Production will start in September.
“Chadwick Boseman’s razor-sharp instincts and undeniable charisma captivated millions of people around the world in Black Panther, and Joe and Anthony Russo have breathed a new energy into the action genre with films like Avengers: Infinity War. Their unique and intelligent approach to filmmaking is anything but formulaic, and with Brian Kirk at the helm directing, this film promises to go beyond the typical popcorn fare,” said Adam Fogelson, STXFilms chairman.
