Apple Lands Anthony and Joe Russo’s ‘Cherry,’ Starring Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo

Apple Original Films will debut “Cherry,” the highly anticipated film from directors Anthony and Joe Russo, starring Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo. The film will debut in early 2021 on Apple TV Plus.

In March 2019, Variety exclusively announced that the Russo brothers would re-team with the Marvel star for the project. Rounding out the film’s cast are Kelli Burglund, Jack Reynor, Forrest Goodluck, Jeff Wahlberg, Michael Gandolfini, Kyle Harvey and Thomas Lennon. The film is written co-written by Jessica Goldberg and Angela Russo-Otstot.

The film is based on Nico Walker’s New York Times bestselling novel, and centers on a former Army medic (played by Holland) who returns home from war with PTSD, develops an opioid addiction and begins robbing banks.

“Cherry” is the first film from the directors after wrapping up their run at Marvel with “Avengers: Endgame.” The Russos also serve as producers on the film through their AGBO banner, with AGBO vice chairman Mike Larocca and Chris Castaldi, as well as the Hideaway Entertainment’s CEO Jonathan Gray and president Matthew Rhodes. Executive producers on the film include AGBO’s Todd Makurath, Jake Aust and the Hideaway Entertainment’s Kristy Maurer Grisham and Judd Payne.
