Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and In Good Company Films are developing the utopian series “Island,” based on Aldous Huxley’s novel “Island.”

Huxley’s final book, published in 1962, follows a cynical journalist shipwrecked on the fictional utopian island of Pala in the Indian Ocean. Originally tasked with exploiting Pala’s natural resources, he uncovers an independently developed society and embraces the people, their culture and traditions — including psychedelic adventures and alternative social structures. His experience alters the course of his mission.

Huxlery wrote “Island” as the utopian counterpoint to his most famous work, the 1932 dystopian novel, “Brave New World.” “Island” explores the themes of freedom and the power of human potential. Huxley died of cancer in 1963.

Davisson and DiCaprio will executive produce for Appian Way along with George DiCaprio and Roee Sharon. Andrew Alter and Jason Whitmore will executive produce for IGC Films.

Appian Way launched in 2004 as a production company and has producing credits on more than a dozen feature films, including “The Aviator,” “Shutter Island,” “The Ides of March,” “Runner Runner,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Revenant,” “Robin Hood” and “Richard Jewell.”

Appian Way worked with Netflix on the documentaries “Virunga,” “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret,” “The Ivory Game,” “How to Change the World” and “Catching the Sun” and with National Geographic on “Sea of Shadows.” The company’s television credits include “Greenberg,” the “Grant” miniseries on History and the upcoming “The Right Stuff” miniseries for Disney Plus.

Netflix and Leonardo DiCaprio are reteaming for a feature adaptation to the documentary Virunga, which will be written by Oscar-winning Moonlight helmer Barry Jenkins. The Oscar-nominated docu, written and directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, was released on the streamer in 2014 and picked up an Oscar nomination.

DiCaprio, who served as an executive producer on the docu, is producing the project with his Appian Way partners Jennifer Davisson and Phillip Watson as well as Oscar-winner Joanna Natasegara for London-based Violet Films. von Einsiedel will serve as exec producer.

The true story follows rangers risking their lives to save Africa’s most precious national park and its endangered gorillas.

Jenkins, who was also lauded for his adaptation of James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk, is attached to direct Fox Searchlight’s biopic about Alvin Ailey, one of the most influential choreographers of the 20th Century. He also penned the screenplay to Rachel Morrison’s directorial debut, Flint Strong, and has a series adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s bestselling novel The Underground Railroad forthcoming on Amazon.

Deadline hears that the tug of war over one of the highest profile films in Hollywood is about over. Apple will win the derby for the Martin Scorsese-directed film Killers Of The Flower Moon, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese in the lead roles. The deals are being papered — Paramount still has to sign off — but I’m told when they are, it will be an Apple original film, and Paramount will distribute theatrically worldwide.

Paramount had long ago acquired the project from Imperative Entertainment, but in recent weeks had allowed Scorsese and DiCaprio’s manager Rick Yorn to shop it around. Sources said that the studio was nervous about a price tag of $180 million to $200 million after tax credits from an Oklahoma location shoot, and studio brass liked the original Eric Roth draft better than the rewrite. Once Paramount allowed Yorn to take it to market, all studios from Universal to MGM and streamers including Scorsese’s The Irishman backer Netflix and Apple, have been chasing.

The deal, which calls for Apple to finance and become the creative studio, gives the movie a hybrid situation and the best of both worlds. The film will get a wide theatrical release through Paramount before it becomes the biggest film title so far on Apple’s streaming service. A big priority was for this a large scale Western and that was important to Scorsese, DiCaprio, De Niro and the film’s producers Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas at Imperative.

It’s the second huge movie deal for Apple, which Deadline recently revealed acquired Greyhound, the WWII film that stars Tom Hanks, who wrote the script. Clearly, Apple is making its move.

Killers of the Flower Moon has had a large profile since Imperative’s Friedkin and Thomas put the company on the map five years ago by outbidding the field to pay $5 million for the David Grann book Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI. The book is a mystery about a series of murders of wealthy Osage Native Americans in Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. The ensuing investigation established the FBI and was a pivotal moment in the evolution of America from its frontier era.

Roth wrote the script and Scorsese and DiCaprio signed on early, with De Niro agreeing to join later. This is landmark stuff, Scorsese joining together his two most important acting collaborators, who haven’t worked together meaningfully in a film since This Boy’s Life, a breakout turn for DiCaprio, who has credited De Niro with showing him the possibilities that hard work could mean to an emerging actor/superstar.

Leonardo DiCaprio is continuing his work to support Africa’s Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Earth Alliance, which was co-founded by DiCaprio, Emerson Collective and Global Wildlife Conservation, has partnered with the European Commission to launch the Virunga Fund with $2 million in seed money.

The Virunga Fund will help protect the national park, as well as surrounding communities. Virunga has lost a significant amount of revenue since closing in March due to COVID-19.

The fund’s goals include disease prevention efforts, protection of the mountain gorilla and other species and support of law enforcement and families of fallen rangers.

“I had the great honor of meeting and supporting Virunga’s courageous team in their fight against illegal oil drilling in 2013,” said DiCaprio, who produced the 2014 Netflix documentary “Virunga.” “Virunga urgently needs funds to protect the endangered mountain gorilla population, to provide support to the rangers and the families of rangers who have fallen in the line of duty, and to help deliver essential disease prevention efforts. It’s critical that we rally together during this time of incredible crisis.”

According to the fund, 12 Virunga rangers, a driver and four members of the local community were killed in April in an attack by a militia group.

“The COVID-19 pandemic underscores just how profoundly interconnected life is on our planet and how protecting nature’s balance is critical to our health and economic security,” said Brian Sheth, Global Wildlife Conservation board chair and co-founder and president of Vista Equity Partners. “The heroism of Virunga’s rangers does not just benefit the wildlife and local communities that live in and near the park, but all life on Earth. We are calling on the global community to join us in helping to support and protect these guardians and the irreplaceable wildlife and wildlands they protect.”

DiCaprio also recently joined forces with Laurene Powell Jobs and Apple and the Ford Foundation to launch America’s Food Fund, a fundraising initiative that has raised over $26 million with the goal of ensuring reliable access to food. The fund benefits Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, No Kid Hungry, Urban School Food Alliance and Save the Children US.

Additionally, the Oscar-winner raised more than $1.6 million by offering a set visit to his next film, “Killers of the Flower Moon” for the viral All In Challenge, which benefits America’s Food Fund, as well as No Kid Hungry and Meals on Wheels.
