Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Apple reaches deal for upcoming Martin Scorsese film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

According to a new report from Deadline this evening, Apple has reached a deal with Paramount to help finance Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon adaptation. Under the deal, Paramount would still distribute the film. The deal has also been corroborated by the Wall Street Journal.

Marin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to play the lead roles in the film alongside Robert Di Niro. Paramount originally acquired the project, though it recently allowed it to be shopped around as the studio grew weary of the $180 to $200 million price tag.

Once Scorsese and DiCaprio’s manager Rick Yorn got the go-ahead to shop the film around, Netflix, Apple, Universal, MGM, and others started chasing it, but the deal is nearing completion with Apple.

The report explains that Apple will help finance the film and serve as its creative studio. This means the film will still be released in theaters, but will eventually come to the Apple TV+ streaming service — and it will be an “Apple Original Film.”

The deal, which calls for Apple to finance and become the creative studio, gives the movie a hybrid situation and the best of both worlds. The film will get a wide theatrical release through Paramount before it becomes the biggest film title so far on Apple’s streaming service.
