Los Angeles: Chadwick Boseman is set to produce and star in a police thriller titled “17 Bridges”.
The “Black Panther” star will play a disgraced NYPD detective, who gets a shot at redemption when he gets involved in a city-wide hunt for a cop killer, Variety reported.
STXfilms will also back the project with Russo brothers, who have directed Boseman in this year’s blockbuster “Avengers: Infinity War”, and Logan Coles.
Brian Kirk, known for shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Luther”, will direct the film, written by Adam Mervis.
“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,” STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said. (PTI)
