Killers of the Flower Moon, which is most certainly not a Marvel movie, is based off the book of the same name and is said to have now grown into a production that will set those involved back more than $200 million. According to a Wall Street Journal update on the Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer, Scorsese's reps have initiated discussions with both Apple and Netflix to distribute or assist in producing the film. Per the report, Paramount isn't opposed to a final deal that would see them still involved in a distributor or similar capacity.
Previously, Scorsese turned to a similar method for his Irishman epic, which ultimately became a Netflix release. A separate report from 9to5Mac notes that Apple may have the advantage with Scorsese’s latest, as the company’s Apple TV+ service is "more friendly to movie theaters."
Killers of the Flower Moon, based on David Grann's 2017 book and also starring Robert De Niro, was originally announced as being prepped for a 2021 release. Additional cast and release info has not been released.
Apple, meanwhile, is helping contribute to stuck-at-home social distancing woes by its recent unveiling of a selection of free Apple TV+ shows including Servant, Dickinson, Little America, Ghostwriter, and more. The freeness will persist for a limited time only and is available without a subscription.
