Martin Scorsese’s next film will land at Apple.
The director, 77, is set to direct Killers of the Flower Moon starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro and it will be an Apple Original Film, with Paramount Pictures distributing the movie in theaters, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper reports the budget for the film is more than $200 million. This isn’t the first movie Apple has acquired: the streaming giant has also bought Greyhound, a Tom Hanks World War II drama, according to WSJ.
The first time DiCaprio, 45, and De Niro, 76, worked together was in 1993’s This Boy’s Life, which was a breakout role for the younger actor.
Killers of the Flower Moon is based on the 2017 book by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, which investigates a series of murders of wealthy Osage people that took place in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s after substantial oil deposits were discovered on their land.
