Chadwick Boseman to Star in Action-Thriller '17 Bridges' for STXfilms

Joe and Anthony Russo are producing.

Chadwick Boseman is reteaming with Avengers: Infinity War filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo for the action-thriller 17 Bridges.

The STXfilms project follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption. 

The Russo brothers are producing with Mike Larocca executive producing under their AGBO banner. Boseman will also produce, along with his writing and producing partner Logan Coles.

Veteran TV director Brian Kirk (The TudorsGame of Thrones) is directing from a script written by Adam Mervis.

Boseman is now in theaters playing T'Challa in Infinity War, after having starred in his own Black Panther stand-alone in February that has grossed over $1.3 billion at the global box office. He is repped by Greene & Associates, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham.

STXfilms' next release is the Mark Wahlberg-fronted action-thriller Mile 22, due out Aug. 17. The studio has several upcoming star-centered action projects, including Jennifer Garner's Peppermint and Vin Diesel's Muscle.
