Although many seem pretty skeptical about Apple’s foray into the world of original content, there is no doubt they’re really shooting for the stars — literally. Thus far, they have the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Jason Momoa, Hailee Steinfeld on their various projects, and that’s not even mentioning filmmakers like M. Night Shyamalan bringing their stories to the platform.

Now you can add another big name to their long list of talents. THR is reporting that critical darling Alfonso Cuarón is headed over to the tech giant’s new service. more specifically, he’s signed on to develop TV projects for Apple TV+.

This will not clash with his other non-exclusive deal with Anonymous Content.

This is quite the development, as this comes after Cuarón’s Roma nabbed some key Oscar noms, including Best Picture. Clearly, Apple doesn’t mess around when it comes to locking down those creators. I can only guess it’s the almighty dollar and extra promise to promote that really has them flocking.
