The filmmaker has already partnered with Apple on his upcoming film Killers of the Flower Moon. Scorsese is directing, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro starring.

Killers of the Flower Moon, based on David Grann's non-fiction book Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, will be distributed by Paramount theatrically with Apple releasing it on its Apple TV+ streaming service.

The film follows the murders of wealthy Osage Native Americans in the 1920s after oil was discovered under their land in Oklahoma.

Apple has also signed a first-look deal with DiCaprio's film and television company Appian Way.
