Joe and Anthony Russo’s upstart studio AGBO has moved into an exclusive negotiation for Cherry, the just published “novel” by first-time author Nico Walker. AGBO bid a $1 million outright buy for the Knopf book, which parallels the true life story of the author, a former Army medic who returned from Iraq with extreme un-diagnosed PTSD and fell into opioid addiction and began robbing banks. Walker was caught in 2011 and is scheduled to be released in 2020.
The Russos are looking to make this the next film they direct.
