17 Bridges: Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) to Produce and Star in Action Thriller

Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) will produce and star in STXfilms upcoming action-thriller 17 Bridges.

Boseman’s writing and producing partner, Logan Coles, will also produce with “Avengers: Infinity War” directors Joe and Anthony Russo under their Agbo banner. Mike Larocca of Agbo will executive produce.

Brian Kirk, whose credits include “Luther” and “Game of Thrones,” is directing from a script by Adam Mervis (“The Philly Kid”). Boseman will portray a disgraced NYPD detective who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.

The movie will start production in September. STXfilms’ Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff will oversee the film’s production.

“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,” STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said.
