Nowadays, long time actresses and actors are seemingly swapping being in front of the screen, for behind it, including Leonardo DiCaprio and his production company, Appian Way. The business has been tapped by Apple for a now-signed multi-year deal which will cover television and film.
According to reports, the new deal will see two existing projects brought to life including Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon — which stars DiCaprio — and thriller series Shining Girls, also executive produced by the actor. Apple is believed to have invested $200 million USD into the projects which will give the tech giant the rights to stream it via Apple TV+. Paramount Pictures will distribute the films theatrically.
Other work from Appian Way includes The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant, Shutter Island, and The Aviator, as well as other films and documentaries including The Right Stuff, Cowspiracy, Sea of Shadows, and The Ides of March.
Apple has also signed hotly-anticipated partnerships with the likes of Idris Elba and Oprah Winfrey.
