Chadwick Boseman is stepping out of the Black Panther suit to jump into an international thriller film set to be directed by Oscar-winning Moonlight director Barry Jenkins.
The forthcoming film, Expatriate, was co-written by Boseman and Logan Coles and will follow the story of a plane hijacking during the 1970s. Boseman and Coles previously worked together on the 2017 thriller, Message from the King, which stars the 41-year-old actor.
As for Jenkins, this film will be adding to his already busy schedule. He's currently in post-production for the James Baldwin adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk and is attached to a miniseries based on Colson Whitehead's The Underground Railroad. And he does it all while providing epic twitter threads like that time he live-tweeted the classic 1999 film, Notting Hill, after drinking plenty of Woodford Reserve.
Boseman is, of course, starring in the upcoming Marvel film, Black Panther, that's already breaking records in ticket sales ahead of its Feb. 16 release date. He's also set to appear in two more films based on the comic book franchise.
And as these two creators come together, it's bound to be lit.
The Expatriate news comes after Gabrielle Union released a trailer for her own thriller, Breaking In, which follows a mom who's willing to take down anyone who comes between her and her kids, including a group of ruthless thieves who break into her late father's home.
