Apple has reportedly won another high-profile film for its streaming service. The company announced that it is teaming up with Julianne Moore and A24 on 'Sharper', a film that "follows a con artist, played by Moore, set in the world of Manhattan's billionaire echelon."

"In a competitive situation, Apple has landed Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka's highly sought-after spec feature screenplay "Sharper," starring and produced by Academy Award winner Julianne Moore. "Sharper" follows a con artist, played by Moore, set in the world of Manhattan's billionaire echelon."

In a press release released on Apple's Newsroom website, the company notes that this is Moore's second project with Apple. The actress is also set to star in the upcoming thriller "Lisey's Story" from Stephen King.

"Sharper" marks Moore's second project with Apple, following the much-anticipated, upcoming limited series "Lisey's Story," a deeply personal thriller from writer Stephen King and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, in which Moore will star and executive produce, to premiere exclusively on Apple TV+."

Apple notes that this is also not the first time it has teamed up with A24 on a project. The two companies are also working on the limited series "On The Rocks" from Sofia Coppola.

"In addition to "Sharper," Apple and A24's feature film partnership includes the highly-anticipated "On The Rocks" from Sofia Coppola, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, and "The Sky is Everywhere." Apple will also soon premiere "Greyhound," starring Tom Hanks, on July 10; and Sundance 2020 Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary, "Boys State," with A24 as the distribution partner on the film."

Apple has not yet announced a release date for the film.
