Inspired by Nico Walker’s own life, Cherry follows a college student who joins the U.S. Army after nearly losing the love of his life, Emily. Serving as a medic in Iraq, he is exposed to horrors he never imagined, and to cope, he and his fellow soldiers huff computer duster, abuse painkillers and watch porn when they’re not being injured in battle. Upon returning home, the protagonist deals with PTSD, and to pay for his debts and drug addiction, he starts robbing banks, which makes him feel the same way he did when in combat. In real life, Walker stole approximately $40,000 in just a few months, but he was caught in 2011 and sent to prison. He wrote Cherry while behind bars, and as Deadline noted in its report, Joe and Anthony Russo “are very passionate about the material.” Not only do they hail from Cleveland like Walker, but they have also lost friends to drugs, so they want to pour their time into this project next.
