LEONARDO DiCaprio has partnered with Apple for a string of new TV series and films in a huge multi-year deal.
The streaming giant has signed the Hollywood star’s Appian Way Productions and is thought to be working on one Apple TV+ project, already.

The new deal follows previous partnerships between Apple and DiCaprio, which includes the upcoming Martin Scorsese-directed Killers of the Flower Moon.
Rumoured to be starring Leo and Robert De Niro, the film is expected to be a major string to Apple TV+’s bow as it hopes to gain a foothold in the film industry.
According to IndieWire, who confirmed the Appian Way/Apple collaboration news with sources, revealed the tech giants decided to back the $200-million-plus film after Paramount balked at the ballooning budget.
Back in April the Wall Street Journal reported Paramount had told Scorsese to seek out other partners – with the director reportedly reaching out to Apple, Netflix, Universal, and MGM.
