If it is worth it, Apple is not ignoring it. This looks to be the culmination of an apple bite after paying $ 120 million for claiming the rights to Will Smith’s next film, “Emancipation,” of its Apple TV + platform. What has been done so far has been the biggest contract acquisition in film history.
Following the launch at the Cannes Virtual Film Market, held in late June as a replacement for the Cannes Film Festival, several producers expressed interest a project that features Smith’s course and is directed by Antoine Fuqua, best known for his involvement in “Training Day” projects and “The Equalizer” projects.
Apple manages the distribution among the seven manufacturers interested in the project with a tender exceeding $ 75 million. The final payers were Warner Bros. and Apple, and the latter eventually closed the deal.
