After making a splash in the MCU, Chadwick Boseman is ready for another role.

The "Black Panther" star has lined up a new project. Boseman is set to star in "17 Bridges" from STXfilms, Variety reports. He'll also produce the action-thriller.

We most recently saw Boseman as a superhero, and it sounds like his "17 Bridges" character will also have a shot at saving the day. The actor reportedly plays a disgraced detective in the NYPD who is trying to redeem himself. He'll get involved in a massive manhunt for a cop killer. The film is described by STXfilms Chairman Adam Fogelson as "a thrilling new take on the race-against-the-clock crime-drama."

Boseman isn't the only big name tied to the project. His "Avengers: Infinity War" directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, are producing through their banner, Agbo. STXfilms highlighted that fact, with Fogelson saying the company has "assembled a dream team of collaborators on '17 Bridges.'"

Adam Mervis wrote the script, and Brian Kirk will direct. Logan Coles is also set to produce, while Drew Simon and Kate Vorhoff are overseeing production for STXfilms.

The movie is expected to start shooting in September, so we'll look forward to seeing more of Boseman soon.
