Chadwick Boseman Starring In “17 Bridges”6 months ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Everyone from Black Panther has been hitting headlines with announcements of movie roles and of course, the King of Wakanda is no different. Chadwick Boseman is taking us across 17 Bridges, a new action thriller Boseman will be producing and starring in.
Shortly after the news of a possible release date for the sequel to Black Panther, Variety reported the actor will be teaming up with Game of Thrones director, Brian Kirk, and will take on the role of “a disgraced NYPD detective who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.”
Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms, explains the movie a little bit further as to why he chose the team he did,
“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 formuliac, and with Brian Kirk at the helm directing, this film promises to go beyond the typical popcorn fare.”
