Apple has apparently paid big bucks for its partnership with Skydance Media.
As reported by Variety, the "Mission: Impossible" and "Top Gun: Maverick" production company has carved out a "lucrative and rarified" deal with Apple. According to the report, Skydance Media has a "put deal" with Apple TV+, meaning that the streaming service is "obligated to release movies its partner chooses."
The agreement reportedly grants Skydance two feature films with budgets up to $125 million but does not guarantee a theatrical release for either project.
One of the first projects to come from Apple and Skydance will be "Luck," a new animated film currently slated for release on August 5, 2022. It will be the first animated feature from Skydance Animation.
