Marvel’s films have gathered over a decade to many artists who collaborate beyond this cinematic universe. This time the directors Joe and Anthony Russo face the adaptation of a novel bestseller based on a real case and are negotiating with the Spider-Man himself to be a part. After having worked together in blockbusters as Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, which is currently on the undercard breaking all the records, the Russo reconvene the talented Tom Holland, this time for the Starring in his new film «Cherry».
Tom Holland has theatrical training and worked before in Hollywood, but his jump to fame was with the role of Spider-Man
Holland would play a barely trained army doctor returning to North America after participating in the Iraq conflict. Because of his post-traumatic stress he becomes addicted to opioids and eventually begins to rob banks to sustain his addiction. The book on which this crude story is based was written from prison by Nico Walker and automatically became a bestseller. Walker denies that the story of «Cherry» is autobiographical, but it certainly keeps many similarities with his own life. He is currently serving an 11-year prison sentence, ending next year. From a simple prose, the book portrayed the horrors of Iraq and the insensibility of war from the perspective of a mediocre man, who learn to survive as he can. The title «Cherry» comes from the colloquial word to designate the rookies in the war zone.
The Russo brothers continue to raise in spades with the collection of Avengers: Endgame, but do not fall asleep on the laurels
While «Avengers: Endgame» continues to surpass sales records and already surpassed Titanic as the most grossing film in history (only Avatar remains ahead), the Russo Brothers plan to present their new film «Cherry» next week in the Festival of Cannes. The script was written by Jessica Goldberg and auctioned for a million dollars to the directors. After making four Marvel movies, which are raising more than six billion dollars worldwide, this step takes them in a completely different direction. The Russo’s have a personal interest in making this film, as they are hailing from Cleveland as a Walker and have seen their own friends fall into the same kind of addiction as the author of «Cherry.» He’ll be back to play Spider-Man in the next big Marvel launch. In conjunction with Sony. «Spider-Man: Away from Home» premieres in Argentina next July 4. In this note:
