The first film is based on the true story of a former Army medic’s struggles with an opioid addiction that he develops after returning from Iraq with PTSD, and his subsequent time spent as a bank robber in order to support his addiction, according to a press release.

Directed by the Russo Brothers, “Cherry” shoots October 14 – December 10.

The other is the story of Fred Hampton, the outspoken leader of the Chicago Black Panther Party and his formation of the Rainbow Coalition in the late 1960’s.

A press release says it’s the account of unlikely groups uniting as allies to fight for a shared goal: combatting racism and police brutality.

“Untitled Fred Hampton Project” is produced by Warner Bros and shoots October 21 – December 18.
