Tom Holland, Russo Brothers Reunite for Heist Movie “Cherry”

If you’re thinking Tom Holland’s collaboration with the Russo Brothers will be over after Avengers: Endgame – think again! The duo just cast the young actor in their next project Cherry.

This heist movie will be based on Nico Walker’s debut novel of the same name. It’s a fictionalized account of his life and follows a former Army medic who turned to robbing banks to pay for his increasing medical bills and cope with his PTSD.

Tom Holland is tapped for the lead role in Cherry and this won’t be his first time working with Anthony and Joe Russo. They were responsible of casting him as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and knew he’s the right choice from the get-go.

“We did two screen tests with the character. We were pretty vocal about who we wanted for the part. He’s fantastic. Amazing. It’s like Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun. Rarely do you see a kid carry a movie like that,” said Joe Russo.

Holland went on to reprise this role in additional four films – including Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, which are yet to come out. He’s currently attached to a series of promising projects outside the MCU, including The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle and Chaos Walking.
