Leonardo DiCaprio & Jennifer Davisson’s Appian Way Sets First Look Film Deal At Sony
Appian Way Productions’ Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson have set the production company into a multi-picture, multi-year first look deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment to produce scripted feature films. The companies are already in development on two projects and the deal comes off DiCaprio’s turn in the Quentin Tarantino-directed Best Picture nominee Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood.
Deal follows one that Appian Way made at Apple for TV projects and documentaries.
Said Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group Chairman Tom Rothman: “I first met the supernova talented Leonardo DiCaprio over 24 years ago on Romeo and Juliet. We then shipped out together on the Titanic and my admiration for him as a fully-rounded filmmaking genius has only increased over the many years since. His producing and acting instincts — superbly supported by Jennifer — are both driven by service to the best material in the world. At Sony, we feel like we just landed a rare GOAT deal — as Michael Jordan and Tom Brady are to basketball and football, so is Leo to film.”
