Anthony and Joe Russo’s production company AGBO purchased the film rights to the novel in August 2018. They beat out offers from Warner Bros. (which would’ve had James Franco directing) and Sony. With the Russos set to direct the film, it was revealed in March 2019 that Tom Holland had entered talks to star in the film. Ciara Bravo, Jack Reynor, Jeff Wahlberg, Kyle Harvey, Forrest Goodluck and Michael Gandolfini were added to the cast in October.
Filming began on 8 October 2019 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, before it eventually wrapped on 20 January 2020.
Apple TV+ acquired the film’s distribution rights in September 2020. On 24 November 2020, they announced the film will have a theatrical run on 26 February 2021 before being released on Apple TV+ on 12 March 2021.
This is the fourth collaboration between the Russo Brothers and Tom Holland, and their first non-Marvel Cinematic Universe.
