Deadline reports that Stephan James has joined the cast of STX Films’ upcoming 17 Bridges. He’ll star opposite Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War) in the action-thriller.

James is best known for his roles in films such as Selma and Race. He will next be seen in Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk which is set to have its theatrical release this November.

Directed by Brian Kirk (LutherGame of Thrones) and written by Adam Mervis (The Philly Kid), 17 Bridges follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who is given a shot at redemption. Thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, he begins to undercover a massive conspiracy that links his fellow cops to a criminal empire and must decide who he is hunting and who is actually hunting him. During the manhunt, Manhattan is completely locked down for the first time in its history — no exit or entry to the island including all 17 bridges.

Also starring in the film are J.K. Simmons (Counterpart), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Taylor Kitsch (Waco), Morocco Omari (Empire) and Keith David (Night School).

Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Infinity War) are producing with Boseman and production partner Logan Coles, with Mike Larocca serving as executive producer for The Russo Brothers’ AGBO banner. STXfilms’ Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff will oversee the film’s production, which was scheduled to begin in September.

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.”

In addition to Boseman’s credits for his breakout role as T’Challa in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, he’s starred in the biopics 42MarshallGet 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.
