After the great success of ‘Black Panther,’ the door is wide open for Chadwick Boseman in Hollywood. He can do whatever he wants at this point.
It was reported this week that the 40-year-old actor’s next project will be the action-thriller ‘17 Bridges,‘ which is being distributed by STXfilms. Not only will he star in the movie, he’ll also act as a producer alongside Joe and Anthony Russo.
There was a bidding war for this script back in 2016. STXfilms reportedly beat out Universal, Sony and Warner Bros. Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) has signed a deal to direct.
The story follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who, after being pushed into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption.
Sounds interesting enough, right? There is certainly a lot of talented people working on this movie. It’s scheduled to begin production in September. We will keep you posted as more casting news becomes available.
