Chadwick Boseman will step out of Wakanda for the New York police drama 17 Bridges. STX Entertainment announced Wednesday that Chadwick will star as a disgraced NYPD detective thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer. The film will be Chadwick’s first non-Marvel movie following the $1.3 billion box-office success of Black Panther. He also appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and has shot its follow-up.
17 Bridges will reteam Chadwick with Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The Russos will produce the film, to be directed by Brian Kirk, who is known for working on the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones with a script by Adam Mervis.
