Apple Inc has secured a deal for Hollywood veteran Martin Scorsese’s next film, Killers of the Flower Moon, US media reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Killers of the Flower Moon will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. This is the second major film that Apple has acquired after Greyhound, starring Tom Hanks, last year.

The upcoming film will be labeled an Apple Original Film, and ViacomCBS Inc’s Paramount Pictures will distribute it theatrically worldwide, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal and Deadline.

Apple won over rivals such as Netflix Inc that were also interested to produce the film, the WSJ reported.

Apple dis not comment on the news. ViacomCBS was not available for comment.

Killers of the Flower Moon is an adaptation of the non-fiction book of the same name, by David Grann. The book is based on an FBI investigation into the killings of Native American Osages during the 1920s.

Scorsese’s last film, The Irishman, was released on Netflix last year and it also helped the company raise its paid subscribers in the fourth quarter.
