Apple Picking-up ‘Argylle’ From Matthew Vaughn
Argylle boasts a star-studded cast containing Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, and Samuel L. Jackson. Singer Dua Lipa is set to provide both the title, score, and appear in the movie too.
Mr. Vaughn (pictured above, with Claudia Schiffer,) said:
I’m thrilled to team with Apple and bring the most compelling spy thriller I’ve ever read to the only streaming service that can create a franchise of this scale and quality for global audiences to experience.
The film is based on a forthcoming spy novel by Ellie Conway, and the hope is it will become part of a franchise. It was not known at the time of this writing whether Argylle will appear both in theaters and on Apple TV+ and when the release will take place.
Mr. Vaughn is already working with Apple on Tetris: The Movie.
