The STXfilms feature 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 Russo brothers are producing with Mike Larocca executive producing under their AGBO banner. Boseman will also produce, along with his writing and producing partner Logan Coles.

 

Veteran TV director Brian Kirk (The TudorsGame of Thrones) is directing from a script written by Adam Mervis.

 

Boseman is now in theaters playing T’Challa in Infinity War, after having starred in his own Black Panther stand-alone in February that has grossed over $1.3 billion at the global box office. He is repped by Greene & Associates, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham.
