Tom Holland is an amazing actor. Our beloved neighborhood Spider-Man is now starring in other films and seems to be doing a pretty good job! Joe Russo's film Cherry starring Holland, Ciara Bravo, the IT actor Bill Skarsgård, Kelli Berglund, Jack Reynor, Michael Gandolfini is now in post-production status. It is a crime drama based on a novel of the same name by Nico Walker. It is a story of an army medic who becomes addicted to opioids and begins robbing banks to fund his addiction. Seems intense! But Russo says Holland's acting in this is good enough for an Oscar!
Due to COVID-19 there is no release date on the film. This means judging Holland's performance is still a no-go. We will just have to take Russo's word for it. Though it certainly feels like it will be worth the wait. Russo said to ComicBook.com, "I think it's an Oscar-worthy performance. I think he is absolutely amazing in it. He gives a gut-wrenching performance. What he does to himself emotionally and physically is unbelievable. We haven't seen an actor in a role like this in a while. The movie spans a decade, complemented by an epic performance. And one that I certainly hope will be in the Oscar conversation."
Russo didn't confirm the release date and said they are only "a few months" from completing it. He also commented on the current state of the Entertainment industry, saying "The question is, what's the market going to be? Where we are going to be? When are movie theatres going to reopen? There's a lot of questions that need to be answered before we release it."
Holland has shared few stills from the shooting days on his Instagram page and that has only left his fans intrigued. He shared a photo thanking Cleveland's Veterans. Given it is Russo brothers, the film will be extremely close to reality.
