What happens when your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man ventures out of the neighborhood? Spider-Man: Far From Home follows teenager Peter Parker across the pond as he hangs up his Spidey suit for a class trip to Europe. If the Peter of 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming longed for more grown-up, world-saving responsibility, this Peter is a bit more willing to hang on to his youth and spend a few weeks not stopping supervillains.
“Peter’s ready for a vacation at the beginning of this movie, to say the least,” returning director Jon Watts tells EW of the hardworking hero. “This film is about the world telling him, ‘It’s time for you to step up and grow up, kid,’ and he’s saying, ‘But I still want to be a kid and go on vacation.’”
Unfortunately for Peter, the forces of evil have other plans. His attempts to prolong his childhood felt relatable to Holland and Watts, and relatability runs deep in Spider-Man’s veins (not unlike a certain radioactive spider venom). After all, most of us have more in common with an awkward kid from Queens than a golden Asgardian god or a de-iced World War II supersoldier. When Homecoming hit theaters two summers ago, Holland waded through comments on social media to see what fans most connected with and what he should explore in the sequel. The overwhelming answer was Peter’s approachability.
“Everyone really enjoyed the fact that throughout [Homecoming], there’s always something you can relate to with him,” Holland explains. “So in this film, especially, we tried to tailor the script in a way so that we could hit so many different relatable scenarios, so that not a single person in the world felt left out watching this movie.”
With the culmination of the “Avengers” storyline on the horizon, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is in talks to star in the Russo brothers’ “Cherry,” which is expected to be the directing duo’s first feature non-Marvel gig. “Avengers: Endgame” helmers Joe and Anthony Russo will direct from a script by Jessica Goldberg, who adapted the novel “Exit West” for the brothers’ studio AGBO and was creator and EP of Hulu series “The Path.” AGBO acquired the rights to Nico Walker’s book, “Cherry,” in August, with plans to shoot over the summer.
“Cherry” parallels the true life story of the author, a former Army medic who returned from Iraq with extreme undiagnosed PTSD, fell into opioid addiction and began robbing banks. Walker was caught and convicted in 2011 and is scheduled to be released in 2020.
The brothers will produce along with AGBO’s Mike Larocca. AGBO has made its presence known as it continues to build its development slate. After it won the rights to “Cherry” following a highly competitive bidding war last summer, the pic became a top priority at the upstart studio. Holland became an easy choice for the lead role due to the trio’s involvement in “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Holland is reprising his role as Peter Parker in “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which bows this summer, and stars in Lionsgate tentpole “Chaos Walking.” Both the Russo brothers and Holland are repped by WME. Holland is also repped by The Curtis Brown Group.

“I’ve been playing Spiderman in my bedroom since I was a kid. I grew up watching the films, all the cartoons. I was kind of obsessed with him. When I walked on set for the my first day, it was my first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it was my thousandth time playing Spiderman, so I felt like I had it in the bag.” While Peter Parker might be jetting off in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, for Tom Holland it is quite the opposite. The hotly anticipated offering from Marvel will see the British star man come home to London, albeit in the form of the friendly neighbourhood hero we all know and love, as well as a quick detour to Venice. In the first cover story for our latest issue, we chat to Tom about filming in his hometown, making the character his own, and his future directorial ambitions.

We finally added amazing production stills from Tom’s movie The Current War! Check out the Gallery for 34 high quality photos! We also heard from THR that 13 Films has partnered with Lantern Entertainment, an affiliate of The Weinstein Co. buyer Lantern Capital Partners, to handle foreign distribution of the Harvey Weinstein-tainted historical epic The Current War. Initially due for release last November, Current War has gone without a domestic release date. The film, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, first bowed at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
The film focuses on the rivalry between electricity innovators Thomas Edison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon), was a casualty in last year’s fallout of the revelations about the disgraced movie mogul, who acted as producer on the project.
