Apple TV+ has landed the rights to “Blitz,” the sought-after new feature from Oscar-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen featuring the stories of Londoners during World War II’s Blitz, which he will write, direct and produce, reports Deadline. The film will begin filming later this year.
McQueen’s Lammas Park produces alongside Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films, and Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer from New Regency. This reunites McQueen with New Regency, where he made the Oscar Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave, and Widows. The film was developed and packaged by New Regency under Steve McQueen’s first look deal.
