The announcement comes months after Apple acquired Scorsese’s upcoming drama Killers of the Flower Moon, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, from Paramount.
The movie will stream on Apple TV+ after its theatrical run, reported Deadline.
Scorsese, best known for films such as Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, The Departed, The Aviator and most recently The Irishman, formed Sikelia Productions in 2003, and the company has produced all of the auteur's projects since then.
Apple had previously signed first-look deals with DiCaprio's Appian Way, Idris Elba's Green Door Pictures and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions.
