Chadwick Boseman has had huge success with Black Panther and now we have the 21 Bridges trailer where he plays the lead role as an embattled NYPD detective (Boseman), is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. As the night unfolds, lines become blurred on who he is pursuing, and who is in pursuit of him. When the search intensifies, extreme measures are taken to prevent the killers from escaping Manhattan as the authorities close all 21 bridges to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island.
21 BRIDGES is produced by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo who have had a pretty good year having directed the top grossing film of all time, Avengers: Endgame that knocked Avater off its perch. 21 BRIDGES is directed by Brian Kirk (Game of Thrones) and starring Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Sienna Miller (American Sniper, The Lost City of Z), Taylor Kitsch (American Assassin, True Detective, Waco), Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk, Homecoming) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Justice League).
The film is written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Adam Mervis. Carnahan has a good pedigree with screenplay having been involved in Brad Pitt’s ‘World War Z’ and true life story Deepwater Horizon starring Mark Wahlberg. He is also the brotjer of writer / director Joe Carnahan who himself has been linked to a number of high profile films including the Hollywood remake of The Raid, as well as Bad Boys 3, the Death Wish remake and the long gestating video game to film adaptation of ‘Uncharted’. STX productions are releasing the film who have had big success with the Jennifer Lopez film Hustlers which is rumoured to be an awards contender for her supporting role.
21 BRIDGES opens in UK cinemas on 22 NOVEMBER
