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.

Killers of the Flower Moon is based on the 2017 true-crime book of the same name which centres on members of an Oklahoma Native American tribe, whose murders in the 1920s sparked a major federal investigation.

Other exciting projects in the pipeline for Apple TV+ include Shining Girls, which will be produced by Appian Way and will star Elizabeth Moss.
