Russo Brothers Circling True Crime Drama CHERRY For Next Feature

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ helmers Joe and Anthony Russo are looking to take a break from Marvel and superheroes, and are looking to acquire the rights to first-time author Nico Walker’s just published novel ‘Cherry.’

Per Deadline, the book parallels the true life story of the author, a former Army medic who returned from Iraq with extreme un-diagnosed PTSD and fell into opioid addiction and began robbing banks. Walker was caught in 2011 and is scheduled to be released in 2020.

The Russos are deep into post on the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ sequel and have set Jessica Goldberg to adapt the script. The pair will produce the adaptation through their newly minted production company, AGBO.
