Apple’s original film, The Banker, will be released in theaters on March 6 , two weeks before the premiere of Apple TV , the apple streaming service, according tomedia reports. Apple is understood to have planned to release the film on December 6 last year, but was forced to postpone the film because of allegations of sexual assault and inaccuracies. The lawsuit is reportedly brought by Cynthia Garrett, the daughter of the film’s lead character, Bernard Garrett Sr., and the half-sister of the film’s co-producer and consultant, Bernard Garrett Jr., who believes the film does not accurately describe her family’s story.
Now, Apple has set a new schedule — it’s in theaters on March 6 th, and apple TV Plus is on March 20.
“The Banker” is based on the true story of bernard Garrett Sr. and Joe Morris, two African-American businessmen, and tells the story of how two African-American entrepreneurs broke racial restrictions in the 1960s. The two roles are played by Samuel L. Jackson (Director Fury) and Anthony McKay (Falcon).
