CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — The filming of the new Russo brothers film “Cherry” will impact traffic on some streets in the Coventry commercial area in Cleveland Heights next Tuesday.

The filming will take place on Oct. 29 on Lancashire Road and on Coventry Road near Hampshire Road, according to a Facebook post from the City of Cleveland Heights. Streets will be blocked for the day and traffic will be redirected.

“Our beautiful neighborhoods are being recognized and we are proud that they have chosen Cleveland Heights,” the post states.

The film crew will do all they can not to disrupt residents in the areas they are filming, and residents should be able to get in and out of their homes, the city said.

“Cherry” is based on a true story of a former army medic who struggles with opioid addiction after serving in Iraq, and his subsequent time he spent as a bank robber to support his drug addiction. It stars Bill Skarsgård from the "IT" movies and Tom Holland of "Spider-Man" fame.
