Reported by Deadline, Apple has landed the rights to Anthony and Joe Russo's "Cherry," an adapted drama starring Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo. The film is expected to premiere on Apple TV+ in early 2021.
"Cherry" focuses on the story of a young man who, after coming back from a deployment in Iraq, turns to oxycontin to manage his PTSD. Eventually, both he and his wife become addicted to heroin, and the couple turns to robbing banks to pay their debt and keep up their drug addiction.
Apple is reportedly planning to submit the film for Oscar consideration. The plan, according to the report, is to qualify with the academy and then premiere the film in 2021.
Apple is continuing to build a catalog of content that features some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. While "Greyhound," which starred Tom Hanks, was likely the biggest film to premiere on Apple TV+ yet, there is a slate of projects coming in the future featuring names like Martin Scorsese, Leonardo Dicaprio, Will Smith, and more.
"Tehran," Apple's espionage thriller set in the capital of Iran, also just premiered on the streaming service today.
