The World really enjoyed watching Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it appearant Joe and Anthony Russo have enjoyed working with him as well. The actor will be starring in and producing an upcoming action-thriller called “17 Bridges” with the Russo brothers. Mike Larocca is executive producing, Adam Mervis is writing the film, and Brian Kirk is directing.
“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.”
Here’s a statement from Chairman of STXfilms, Adam Fogelson:
“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.”
