Fresh off the success of ‘Black Panther‘ Chadwick Boseman has landed a starring role in the upcoming thriller ‘21 Bridges‘
Boseman plays an NYPD detective, who is “thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy.”
In addition to Boseman, 21 Bridges stars J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller, Stephen James and Taylor Kitsch. While previewing the movie at CinemaCon, Boseman (who is also attached as a producer) talked about what attracted him to the script.
I would say that it was combination of being able to have a fast-paced action movie. When I read the script, I could tell that this was gonna be a ride, it’s a ride when you watch it. At the same time, it took me back to my theater days, where you have that fast-paced language, like David Mamet, that New York feel. I feel that this movie sort of captured that combination of things.
This movie will get a nationwide theater release on July 12, 2019. Check out the trailer below…
