Given that they've spent the last few years of their lives putting together the massive Avengers movies Infinity War and Endgame, directors Joe and Anthony Russo would be forgiven if they gear down a little for their next film. Or just take a really long nap. They're picking the first choice, having already optioned the rights to the novel Cherry last year. And they now have Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, set to star.

Nico Walker's based-on-truth 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.

Jessica Goldberg wrote the adaptation, with the brothers producing via their AGBO studio and aiming to shoot the film in the summer. Once, one assumes, they've put all the finishing touches to Endgame and spent some time promoting it.

After 25 April's Endgame, Holland has another turn in the Spider-suit coming up with Spider-Man: Far From Home due on 3 July. He'll also be heard in Spies In Disguise (9 August) and The Voyage Of Doctor Dolittle (31 January next year).
