British actor Holland appeared via video and discussed Cherry, the Russos’ next movie.

It will see Holland starring as a drug-addicted Iraq War veteran who resorts to robbing banks during the American opioid epidemic.

The film will be rated R in the US, similar to an 18 rating in the UK. It will begin shooting in October, the brothers said.

The brothers will also produce a remake of 1968 heist movie The Thomas Crown Affair, which will star Michael B Jordan.

The original featured Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway while a 1999 remake starred Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.

Other projects announced for the Russos’ AGBO Films production company were an adaption of a 1978 Japanese anime series called Battle Of The Planet and an Amazon series based on the graphic novel Grimjack Comics.
