If you’re a fan of Martin Scorsese and his brilliant filmmaking skills, then looks like you’ll have to subscribe to Apple TV Plus if you want to catch up with his work in the future. If you haven’t already, that is.
We’re saying so because Apple TV Plus has bagged exclusive rights to Martin Scorsese’s future projects, both TV shows and films, as part of a multi-year first-look deal that the streamer has signed with Martin Scorsese.
With this deal, Apple TV + furthers its relationship with Scorsese after coming on board his ambitious film ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’. Apple TV + came on board the film after Paramount Pictures told the auteur to look for additional financiers for the expensive $200M project.
Martin Scorsese is the latest and most significant addition to Apple’s rapidly expanding slate of exclusive first-look deals with the cream of Hollywood. It comes close on the heels of Apple’s recent deal with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions, which is a similar multi-year TV and film first-look deal. The Elisabeth Moss starrer limited series, ‘The Shining Girls’ will be the first of the productions under the deal. DiCaprio will executive produce and not act in the series.
Apple TV+ has recently shifted gears in its strategy to become a streaming service to reckon with, and to give Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu a run for their money. The success of Tom Hanks’ Greyhound has propelled it to spend its moolah in acquiring prominent projects and first look deals with Hollywood movers and shakers.
Apple TV+ has, recently, also signed deals with Idris Elba, Ridley Scott, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Alfonso Cuarón, Oprah Winfrey, among others, apart from buying documentary ‘Boys State’ and Will Smith’s ‘Emancipation’ for a hefty sum.
