Apple is closing worldwide rights on 'Argylle', a new spy film to be directed by Matthew Vaughn, reports Deadline. The single picture deal is said to be worth around $200 million and the hope is that it will spark a franchise.

Argylle comes with a killer cast led by Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson. Making her screen-starring debut will be Grammy winner Dua Lipa, who will also provide music for the title track and score. Apple already had a relationship with Vaughn, last year acquiring the biopic Tetris: The Movie, with Taron Edgerton playing the video game’s impresario Henk Rogers.

Vaughn confirmed the deal on Wednesday saying, "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 the soon to be launched novel from Ellie Conway which will be published in 2022 by Transworld Publishers. Jason Fuchs wrote the script for the film.
