Leonardo DiCaprio and Hulu bringing ‘Devil in the White City’ to life

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Di Caprio team with Hulu for ‘Devil in the White City

During Monday's presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour (via Variety), Hulu revealed that they are officially developing a television series based off of Erik Larson's iconic 2003 novel. "The architect was Daniel Hudson Burnham, the fair's brilliant director of works and the builder of numerous country's most important structures, including the Flatiron Building in NY and Union Station in Washington, D.C. The murderer was Henry H. Holmes, a young doctor who, in a malign parody of the White City, built his "World's Fair Hotel" just west of the fairgrounds-a torture palace complete with dissection table, gas chamber, and 3,000-degree crematorium".

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are taking their Dr. H.H. Holmes project to the small screen. An earlier adaptation of the story was in the works from Tom Cruise, but fell out of development in 2004.

Personally I'm excited. Scorsese's career precedes him and if the plan here is for him to direct the entire series himself, this could very easily wind up being his magnum opus.

Amazon, GM in Talks to Invest in Tesla Rival Rivian
In prior remarks, GM CEO Mary Barra said her company has only given a "tiny bit of thought" to developing electric pickup trucks. That in itself is reason enough for optimism about the inevitability of the electric transportation revolution.

"Right now, there is a script being worked on". "One of the things that I had to stop for the past six months [to complete Silence] was my meetings on that script". Paramount Television will also be producing and Billy Ray will be penning the script.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese will executive produce the project along with Stacey Sher, Rick Yorn, Emma Koskoff, and Jennifer Davisson.

For years, true-crime buffs have wondered why Hollywood has yet to make a big-budget movie about America's first confirmed serial killers, Henry H. Holmes.
