Directed by Brian Kirk (LutherGame of Thrones) and written by Adam Mervis, 21 Bridges (previously titled 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 uncover 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 21 bridges.

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

Boseman will also serve as producer alongside Logan Coles, with Mike Larocca serving as executive producer, with MWM Studios also serving as producers.
