Tom Holland in talks for Russo Brothers' next directorial after Avengers: Endgame
The film is an adaptation of Nico Walker's best-selling semi-autobiographical novel of the same name.
After debuting to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the new Spiderman in directors Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland will once again team up with the Russo brothers for a true-life drama titled Cherry.
Titled Cherry, the film is an adaptation of Nico Walker's best-selling semi-autobiographical novel of the same name. Revolving around a former Army medic who returns from Iraq with undiagnosed PTSD, the story follows his opioid addiction, and subsequent bank robbery spree to fuel the habit.
Walker was caught and convicted in 2011, and he is slated to be released in 2020. The film adaptation is penned by The Path's Jessica Goldberg, and the Russo brothers will produce Cherry under their banner AGBO, alongside Mike Larocca.
This film will go on floors once the brothers' Avengers: Endgame, which will reportedly also feature Tom Holland releases next month. Incidentally, films that are under post-production, bankrolled by the brothers -- 17 Bridges and Dhaka -- also stars Chadwick Boseman and Chris Hemsworth who play Black Panther and Thor in the Marvel Universe.
