News of the World Trailer Starring Tom Hanks

Chadwick Boseman Star & Produce '17 BRIDGES'

STXfilms, a division of Robert Simonds’ global, next-generation media company STX Entertainment, today announced that Chadwick Boseman, the breakout star of this year’s blockbuster hit Black Panther, will star in and produce the studio’s upcoming action-thriller 17 BRIDGES alongside his writing and producing partner Logan Coles. Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo are set to produce and Mike Larocca will executive produce the film under their AGBO banner. Brian Kirk (Luther, Game of Thrones) is directing the script written by Adam Mervis (The Philly Kid).

17 BRIDGES follows a disgraced NYPD detective (Boseman) who, after being thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer, is given a shot at redemption. The film will go into production in September 2018.

“STX has assembled a dream team of collaborators on 17 BRIDGES, bringing together the global talents behind two of the biggest action films ever made to give audiences a thrilling new take on the race against the clock crime-drama,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms. “Chadwick Boseman’s razor-sharp instincts and undeniable charisma captivated millions of people around the world in Black Panther, and Joe and Anthony Russo have breathed a new energy into the action genre with films like Avengers: Infinity War. Their unique and intelligent approach to filmmaking is anything but formulaic, and with Brian Kirk at the helm directing, this film promises to go beyond the typical popcorn fare.”

In addition to Marvel’s Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, Boseman has also held starring roles in the critically-acclaimed biopics 42, Get on Up and Marshall. Boseman and Coles are also set to produce the film adaptation of Hakeem Oluseyi's memoir The Stars in My Soul, which has been picked up by Working Title. The duo worked together on 2016’s Message From the King, which Boseman starred in and executive produced and Coles co-produced. Boseman is repped by Greene & Associates, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham, and Coles is also repped by Management 360.

17 BRIDGES is the latest in a series of action releases from STXfilms, including upcoming thrillers MILE 22 (Aug. 17), from director Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg and PEPPERMINT (Sept. 7) starring Jennifer Garner. Additionally, STX recently announced new action franchise MUSCLE for Vin Diesel, an untitled Jason Statham project co-produced with Tencent Pictures, KILLER’S GAME, a second Statham film, an untitled action-comedy starring Dave Bautista, and STEEL SOLDIERS the Robert Zemeckis produced sci-fi action feature co-produced with Alibaba Pictures.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
