Fern Siegel

Martin Scorsese, the director of “Taxi Driver” and “Goodfellas,” has signed a first-look TV and film deal with Apple TV+. At present, he’s filming “Killers of the Flower Moon” for the streamer, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Any future work is in concert with Scorsese’s Sikelia Productions banner.

At Hulu, Sarah Paulson will star in the thriller “Run.” Pulled from a theatrical release on May 8 by Lionsgate, it will stream as a film, directed by Aneesh Chaganty (“Searching”). Paulson plays the sinister mother of a daughter in a wheelchair, a tale of motherhood gone wrong. There is no Hulu date yet, but some global markets will carry a theatrical release of the movie.

Here’s a look at other deals and upcoming projects:
