The Chadwick Boseman-led action thriller “17 Bridges” has been set for a July 12th 2019 release by STX Films. No other major studio release is set for that date yet, but Disney’s “The Lion King” will open the following week and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” the week before.
In “17 Bridges,” Boseman (“Black Panther”) plays a disgraced NYPD detective who is given a shot at redemption after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer.
Brian Kirk (“Luther,” “Game of Thrones”) is directing from a script by Adam Mervis with rewrites by Matthew Carnahan. Shooting on the project is slated to begin in three weeks with Joe and Anthony Russo producing alongside Boseman and Logan Coles.
