Fresh off his throne as King T’Challa aka Black Panther in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, Chadwick Boseman is reteaming with Joe and Anthony Russo to produce and star in the action thriller 17 Bridges from STXfilms. The movie follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.
Brian Kirk has signed on to direct the film. Many people have seen his work and just don’t realize it. Among the many projects he’s worked, he directed three episodes in the first season of Game of Thrones titled The Wolf and the Lion, Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things, and Lord Snow.
The Russo Brothers will produce the film with Boseman and his writing and producing partner Logan Coles and Mike Larocca will be the film’s executive producer.
The film will go into production in September 2018.
