Apple is reportedly planning to release one of its first-ever original films ‘The Banker’ in theaters this March.

It was originally set for December 6, last year due sexual misconduct allegations levelled at Bernard Garrett Jr., the son of the character portrayed by Anthony Mackie in the film.

“We created Apple TV Plus as a home for stories that matter and believe ‘The Banker’, inspired by the brave actions of Bernard Garrett Sr. and Joe Morris, two African American businessmen who brought about positive social change, is one of those stories,” variety.com quoted an Apple spokesperson.
