The new trailer for Chadwick Boseman‘s upcoming 21 Bridges film has premiered at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con event. Produced by the Russo Brothers and directed by Brian Kirk, the film will see Boseman as a cop who murders cop-killers. The footage above showcases Boseman in New York arriving on a crime scene with eight fatally wounded cops. When it’s implied the situation may have been a set-up, Boseman orders the island of Manhattan be shut down in order for him to catch them.
In a recent discussion with ComicBook, Boseman spoke about what attracted him to the film:
“Several things, I would say that it was a combination of being able to have a fast-paced action movie,” Boseman said. “When I read the script, I could tell that this was gonna be a ride. It’s a ride when you watch it. At the same time, it took me back to my theater days where you have the fast-paced language…I lived in New York for years. I feel like this movie sort of captured that sort of things.”
