This isn’t Scorsese’s first Apple partnership — he starred in a Siri ad way back in 2012 and remotely directed a shot in The Departed via iChat in 2007. This isn’t Apple’s first big movie signing, either. Tom Hanks’ WWII naval drama Greyhound premiered on the service last month.
According to Reuters, Killers of the Flower Moon, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, will land on Apple TV+ after it’s distributed in theaters by Paramount Pictures. Based on a book by the same name, the film (which has a $180 million budget) portrays an investigation into the murders of Osage Nation natives in Oklahoma in the 1920s, as well as a subsequent investigation that led to the creation of the FBI as we know it today.
We don’t know yet what other projects Scorsese will bring to Apple TV+.
