"Argylle" is based on the upcoming spy novel of the same name from author Ellie Conway. It follows the world's greatest spy in a globe-trotting adventure, and shooting is set to start later this year.

The upcoming film has a star-studded cast, with Henry Cavill set to star. It will also feature singer Dua Lipa along with John Cena, Bryce Dallas Howard, Samuel L. Jackson, Sam Rockwell, Catherine O'Hara, and Bryan Cranston.

Matthew Vaughn is known for directing films that include "Kingsman," "Kick-Ass," and "Stardust." In a statement, he said he was thrilled to work with Apple.

I'm thrilled to team with Apple and bring the most compelling spy thriller I've ever read to the only streaming service that can create a franchise of this scale and quality for global audiences to experience.

Apple has been working to secure the rights to multiple high-profile films to attract customers to Apple TV+. The company has also inked deals for "Killers of the Flower Moon" with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, "Emancipation" with Will Smith, "Bride" with Scarlet Johansson, "Snow Blind" with Jake Gyllenhaal, "Sharper" with Julianne Moore, and "Kitbag" with Joaquin Phoenix.

I still don't know what a Dua Lipa is.

Wait, is it that annoying green owl that keeps reminding me to learn Spanish? I hate that thing.

So which is it - "nearing completion", or "shooting is set to start later this year"?
The "packaging" is nearing completion, which means the project development and assembling all the "Above the line" talent (actors, director, writer, producers, etc.). You do that in order to present the project to investors (in this case Apple, but when you don't have a company fronting the whole budget for international distribution, you look for distributors in a variety of countries and ancillary markets) and finance the production.
