Apple Inc. secured a deal by talking to Paramount for Martin Scorsese’s next film, “Killer of the Flower Moon,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
Paramount was worried about the budget of this film, but now it seems that it has gone away. According to sources, this will be the second big Apple film after Tom Hanks starrer Greyhound.
However, Greyhound not premiere yet on Apple TV, but it’s available soon on the platform.
The film, based on David Grain’s non-fictional book, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” is set in 1920s Oklahoma.
The story shows FBI investigation into the murders of Native Americans during the 1920s.
The film will be renamed the Apple Original Film Label, and Paramount Pictures will distribute it theatrically worldwide.
It was not easy for Apple to put this film in its bag because rivals included Netflix.
Scorsese’s last film was The Irishman, which premiered on Netflix.
