Apple TV+ is marking another first, but this is one Apple isn't about to celebrate. Hollywood Reporter sources say Apple has canceled Bastards, an adaptation of an Israeli drama that would have starred Richard Gere. Reportedly, Apple and show co-runner Howard Gordon clashed over the series' "tone of vigilante justice." The title would have Gere playing one of two Vietnam veterans who reunite after a shared love is killed by a car, and whose combination of past miseries and resentment of millennials leads the two to "go on a shooting spree." You can see why that might be problematic for Apple in light of current events, even if it's not averse to mature subject matter.
