- Jonah Hill will portray Grateful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia in a new biopic.
- The film will be directed by Martin Scorsese.
Jonah Hill will play Jerry Garcia in a new Grateful Dead biopic for Apple TV+.
As reported by Deadline, Martin Scorcese has signed on to direct the upcoming film. It will be Apple's second film with the award-winning director as the company is already working on "Killers of the Flower Moon" together.
Scorcese and Hill have already worked together on "The Wolf of Wall Street" which netted Hill his second Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. It's not surprising that Apple got to the film quickly as it signed a first-look deal with the director's Sikelia Productions company last year.
It's currently unclear when the film will begin production or when it will premiere in theaters or on Apple TV+. If you want to ensure you have the best video and audio quality possible to watch it, check out our review of the new Apple TV 4K.
