21 Bridges cast members Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch, and J.K.Simmons talk about working on the film. 21 BRIDGES follows an embattled NYPD detective (Chadwick 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 21 BRIDGES to prevent any entry or exit from the iconic island. The movie opens in theaters Friday, November 22nd, 2019.
STXfilms, MWM STUDIOS and HUAYI BROTHERS PICTURES present 21 BRIDGES, starring Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller, Stephan James, Keith David, with Taylor Kitsch and J.K. Simmons. Brian Kirk directs from a script written by Adam Mervis and Matthew Michael Carnahan. The producers are Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Mike Larocca, Gigi Pritzker, Chadwick Boseman, and Logan Coles. The director of photography is Paul Cameron, the production designer is Greg Berry, the editor is Tim Murrell, and the costume designer is David Robinson.
21 BRIDGES presents an intriguing mix of spectacle, propulsive and non-stop action, an epic “ticking clock” crime story. The explosive story unfolds during a single night, after a drug heist gone horribly wrong results in the deaths of eight cops. Det. Andre Davis devises the desperate but ingenious plan to close down Manhattan, to enable him and his team to entrap the two perpetrators, who’ll have no place to flee in the sealed-off island.
“The idea of locking down Manhattan for a manhunt was incredibly compelling and cinematic,” says Chadwick Boseman, who portrays Davis and also serves as a producer on the film. “We haven’t seen that before.”
