'17 Bridges' Thread #1: Because We're So Excited About Taylor's New Role

17 Bridges Thread #1

Production begins: September 2018
Scheduled release date: July 12, 2019




Follows a disgraced detective in the NYPD who is given a shot at redemption. Thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, he begins to undercover 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 17 bridges.

Chadwick Boseman’s ’17 Bridges’ Adds J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch

J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller and Taylor Kitsch have joined Chadwick Boseman’s action-thriller “17 Bridges” for STXfilms.

The mini-major announced in July that “Black Panther” star Boseman would produce and star in “17 Bridges.” Brian Kirk, whose credits include “Luther” and “Game of Thrones,” is directing from a script by Adam Mervis (“The Philly Kid”).

Boseman will portray a disgraced NYPD detective who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption. 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 17 bridges to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island.

STXfilms said Wednesday that MWM Studios had joined previously announced producers Boseman, Logan Coles and Joe and Anthony Russo. Gigi Pritzker (“Hell or High Water”) will serve as a producer, Rachel Shane and Adrian Alperovich will serve as executive producers, and Melissa Rucker will be a co-producer, all on behalf of MWM Studios. Mike Larocca will executive produce the film under the AGBO banner.

Simmons won the 2015 Academy Award for best supporting actor for his performance in “Whiplash” and can currently be seen in Jason Reitman’s upcoming political drama “The Front Runner.” Miller starred in Tennessee Williams’ “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in the West End” last year, and will next be seen in the indie thriller “American Woman.” Kitsch starred in “Only the Brave” and the six-part series “Waco.”

Simmons is represented by Gersh. Miller is represented by WME and United Agents in the U.K. Kitsch is represented by CAA and Untitled Entertainment. STXfilms’ Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff will oversee the film’s production on behalf of the studio.

Sienna Miller, J.K. Simmons & Taylor Kitsch Join Chadwick Boseman In STX Thriller ’17 Bridges’

Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, Sienna Miller, and Friday Night Lights alum Taylor Kitsch are set to co-star in 17 Bridges, the action thriller that will be led by Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman. The pic hails from STXfilms, which acquired the spec in 2016. MWM Studios, the company behind the Oscar-nominated film, Hell or High Water, has come on board to produce the pic alongside Boseman as well as Joe and Anthony Russo.

Brian Kirk is directing from a screenplay by Adam Mervis with revisions by Matt Carnahan. The pic will hit theaters July 12.

The plot follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman), who 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 17 bridges to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island.

Logan Coles, Boseman’s writing and producing partner, and Gigi Pritzker (Hell or High Water) are also producers, while Rachel Shane and Adrian Alperovich will serve as executive producers, and Melissa Rucker a co-producer, all on behalf of MWM. Larocca will exec produce the film under the Russo’s AGBO banner.

Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff will oversee production for the studio.

Simmons, who won the Oscar for his supporting role in Whiplash, can next be seen in Sony’s Jason Reitman-directed political drama, The Front Runner. Miller last appeared on the big screen in The Catcher Was a Spy and next stars in the indie American Woman. Kitsch’s recent films include Only the Brave and American Assassin.

Simmons is repped by Gersh; Miller by WME and United Agents in the U.K.; Kitsch by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.

I'm going to take a wild guess that Taylor will probably also play a cop. I'd love it if he were Boseman's partner...or ultimately the bad guy. Though that probably means he'll die in the end.

Filming began a few days ago in Philadelphia with a funeral scene shot there. It's supposed to film through the end of November in both Philly and NYC.

A few shots from set.

Yay. He's in my front yard and back yard!

I hope he's not the bad guy.

50/50 shot he's the bad guy. 50/50 shot he's a cop, which probably means he has to cut the hair.

Chadwick was on set for the scenes they shot the last few days. Sienna was in New York (not filming) as of yesterday, I don't think Taylor has been spotted yet.

It is! I'm kind of surprised at the release date. That's prime summer blockbuster time.

I'm glad it's another ensemble. I wonder if he's going to go with two more supporting roles and then a leading role like he did his last go around with three projects in a row.

With such a good cast, I have to assume it has a good script.

It has some solid people behind it, Russo Brothers, MWM studios...makes me a bit nervous it was written by Boseman but maybe it is a really good script. You would think it would need to be to attract this kind of cast.

If I had to guess I'd say he's on set, or was on his way there...or just based on when he was liking things this morning, at 5 a.m. Either early call time or can't sleep.

Filming again today in Philadelphia.

alecemmert Beautiful afternoon here in Philadelphia. Walked into a movie set on my way home. Apparently THE Chadwick Boseman is in town shooting a movie called "17 Bridges." Charlotte saw him, but I was too late. I'm going to hang around to see if they need an extra

I'm actually going to be in Philly on Monday. I have an appointment with a specialist. BUT I also have to rush home to get to North Jersey to go to the Slash concert... who by the way, Dirty Honey has been opening for. They haven't announced who is opening yet but I hope its them. Although I will probably miss the opening band.

If you're going to be around Philly let me know. They're filming in pretty public locations and people are dishing on locations on social media.

They filmed the funeral scene the other day at the church which was also used for a scene in The Sixth Sense.
