The partnership will begin with the Scorsese film "Killers of the Flower Moon," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. According to IMDb, the film revolves around members of the Osage tribe in Oklahoma who were murdered under mysterious circumstances in the 1920s, sparking a major FBI investigation involving J. Edgar Hoover.

Scorsese is best known for his crime and gangster movies, such as 1973's Mean Streets, 1985's After Hours, 1990's Goodfellas, 2004's The Aviator, 2011's Hugo, 2013's The Wolf of Wall Street, and 2019's The Irishman.

Not a big fan of Apple TV+ but Scorsese is one of my favourite directors. Can't wait to see what comes of this.
Seems to be a lot of comments like yours on all of these deal/contract-related articles. “I’m not a fan, but....”

And that’s exactly what Apple wants Lol. They have a TON of talent onboard and I think this pandemic has tapped into a lot of people’s creativity. Apple TV+ is going to get better and better.

Planting the seeds.

Great talent, BUT he overbudgets his movies. He could spend a lot less producing his films, but he’s old and doesn’t understand how to make new movies at a manageable budget.
Are you willing to give him some valuable tips?
