In November 2018 Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Signs Multiyear Deal with Film Studio A24 who Created Oscar Winner Moonlight, The Children's Act and more." Today, Patently Apple has learned that Apple has teamed up with A24 on a new feature film titled "Sharper," starring Academy Award winner Julianne Moore.
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.
Moore will produce "Sharper" with Bart Freundlich, Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka and Erik Feig of Picturestart. Gatewood and Tanaka will write the script for the film. A24 will serve as the studio, with Picturestart attached as the production company.
"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+.
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.
