Leonardo DiCaprio‘s production company Appian Way has now signed a multi-year first-look deal with Apple covering both films and television shows.

According to reports, the new deal comes on top of two existing projects between Appian Way and Apple, including Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon  — which itself stars DiCaprio — and the thriller series Shining Girls, also executive produced by the actor. Apple also invested $200 million USD into the former, giving it the right to stream it via its Apple TV+ platform while Paramount Pictures will distribute the film theatrically.

Appian Way’s other works include various titles DiCaprio starred in such as The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant, Shutter Island, and The Aviator, as well as other general releases and documentaries including The Right StuffCowspiracySea of Shadows, and The Ides of March.

The deal isn’t the first time Apple has tapped a big name to develop its content side. The tech giant previously also secured partnerships with Idris Elba, Jason Katims, Justin Lin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kerry Ehrin, and Oprah Winfrey.

In other entertainment news, Seth Rogen has shed light on why Sony decided against a sequel to Pineapple Express.
