Apple TV+ is about to get a lot of Ron Howard-backed films on its streaming service.
According to a new report from Deadline, Apple Studios and Imagine Entertainment, founded by Howard and Brian Grazer, have signed a multi-year deal that will produce a number of scripted films exclusively for Apple Original Films.
Imagine Entertainment is a powerhouse in the film industry. The company has received over three dozen Oscar nominations and its film lineup is historic with titles like A Beautiful Mind, The DaVinci Code, American Gangster, Apollo 13, 8 Mile, Inside Man, and Austin Powers.
This isn't Apple's first partnership with Imagine, either. The two companies have already worked on Dads and Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10 for Apple's streaming service.
It is unclear exactly what films will result from the deal or when they will premiere on Apple TV+. If you'd like to check out what's streaming now on the platform, the Apple TV 4K is the best streaming device Apple has to offer.
