21 Bridges poster puts Chadwick Boseman front and center
STX Films has released the official poster for producers Anthony and Joe Russo’s upcoming action film 21 Bridges, offering us our first look at Chadwick Boseman’s character. Set to debut on July 12, you can check out the full poster in the gallery below and look for the full trailer tomorrow!
Directed by Brian Kirk (Luther, Game of Thrones) and written by Adam Mervis, 21 Bridges (previously titled 17 Bridges) follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who is given a shot at redemption. Thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, he begins to uncover a massive conspiracy that links his fellow cops to a criminal empire and must decide who he is hunting and who is actually hunting him. During the manhunt, Manhattan is completely locked down for the first time in its history — no exit or entry to the island including all 21 bridges.
Also starring in the film are J.K. Simmons (Counterpart), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Taylor Kitsch (Waco), Morocco Omari (Empire), Keith David (Night School) and Stephan James (Beale Street Could Talk).
Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Infinity War) are producing with Boseman and production partner Logan Coles, with Mike Larocca serving as executive producer for The Russo Brothers’ AGBO banner. STXfilms’ Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff will oversee the film’s production, which was scheduled to begin in September.
In addition to Boseman’s credits for his breakout role as T’Challa in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, he’s starred in the biopics 42, Marshall, Get on Up, and the drama Draft Day. Boseman and Coles are also set to produce the film adaptation of Hakeen Oluseyi’s memoir The Stars in My Soul. The duo worked together on 2016’s thriller Message From the King, which Boseman starred in and executive produced and Coles co-produced.
