Avengers 4 hasn’t hit our screens yet, but directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are already lining up their next job – and it’s not in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Russo Brothers have landed the rights to Nico Walker’s gritty autobiographical novel Cherry, which they will both direct and produce, according to Deadline.
Cherry tells the true story of Walker’s fall from hero to criminal. The unnamed narrator starts the story as an army medic who returns from Iraq with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Without recognising that he has PTSD, the protagonist becomes a drug addict and gets into spiralling debt. He robs more than 10 banks to try and pay what he owes before finally getting caught in 2011.
Walker was sentenced to 11 years in prison and wrote the novel while incarcerated.
The directors are currently putting Avengers 4 through post-production, after filming back to back with Avengers: Infinity War.
We’re guessing it is quite a bit of work since they killed off the majority of the characters and the universe really needs a lot of help.
Though some of the characters will be returning, not all of them will survive the closing credits of Avengers 4 – if you want to see our theories on who will survive, you can check it out here.
Avengers 4 will be released in the UK on April 26, 2019, and in the US on May 3, 2019.
