New York — Chadwick Boseman will step out of Wakanda for the New York police drama 17 Bridges.

STX Entertainment announced Wednesday that Boseman will star as a disgraced NYPD detective thrust into a citywide manhunt for a cop killer.

The film will be Boseman's first non-Marvel movie following the $1.3bn box-office success of Black Panther. He also appeared in Avengers: Infinity War and has shot its follow-up.

17 Bridges will reteam Boseman with "Infinity War" directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The Russos will produce the film, to be directed by Brian Kirk from a script by Adam Mervis.

The film will begin shooting in September.

The 40-year-old Boseman has also starred in 42, Get on Up and Marshall.
