Chadwick Boseman to star in the Russo brothers’ 17 Bridges

STXfilms has announced that Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War) will star in and produce the upcoming action-thriller 17 Bridges alongside his writing and producing partner Logan Coles. Joe and Anthony Russo (Avengers: Infinity War) are producing with executive producer Mike Larocca under their AGBO banner.

Directed by Brian Kirk (Luther, Game of Thrones) and written by Adam Mervis (The Philly Kid), 17 Bridges follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.

Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms, said: “STX has assembled a dream team of collaborators on 17 Bridges, bringing together the global talents behind two of the biggest action films ever made to give audiences a thrilling new take on the race against the clock crime-drama. 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.”

Boseman’s credits include his breakout role as T’Challa in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, as well as biopics 42, Marshall, Get on Up, and the drama Draft Day. Boseman and Coles are also set to produce the film adaptation of Hakeen Oluseyi’s memoir The Stars in My Soul. The duo worked together on 2016’s thriller Message From the King, which Boseman starred in and executive produced and Coles co-produced.

17 Bridges will start production in September 2018.
