Ted Lasso’s casting takes it to the next level
The success of Ted Lasso comes at a cost to Apple. The Hollywood Reporter recently reported that the cast of the series will be paid much more in the future and especially for season 3. The production of this one would even be delayed following intense salary negotiations. Upon arrival, Jason Sudekis for example, will be paid $ 1 million per episode now, when for the episodes of seasons 1 and 2, his salary reached “only” 250,000 dollars. For supporting roles, the increase is less impressive, but still notable. Actors like Juno Temple or Hannah Waddingham go from 75 to 150,000 dollars.

Christopher Nolan, too greedy for Apple TV +
According to The Holly Reporter, the director ofInterstellar and of Memento would be a few months ago entered into negotiations with Apple TV + for the distribution of its next big film. Unfortunately for Tim Cook, Christopher Nolan’s demands were too high. These included a budget of $ 200 million (half for production, half for marketing), full artistic control, 20% copyright and a three-week period before and after the release of the film during which no other film should be released. The offer from Universal studios would have validated each of these points, since the interested party finally joined them.
Swan Song will be released in theaters first
Apple wants to qualify Swan Song for the Oscar race. For this reason, the film should be released in theaters on December 17th before being available on Apple TV +. Swan Song tells the story of a man at the end of his life, ready to do anything to make his loved ones happy.
