Martin Scorsese & Leonardo Dicaprio

Martin Scorsese & Leonardo Dicaprio

Instead of becoming a feature-length film, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Erik Larson's historical non-fiction book The Devil In The White City: Murder Magic And Madness At The Fair That Changed America will be a Hulu series.

The announcement came from Hulu's Senior Vice President of Originals, Craig Erwich, at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour Monday morning.

The film was passed around a few different studios over the years, but with no real progress being made it seemed as if the project would never see the light of day. or screen. There were even talks that Tom Cruise would star and produce an adaptation and later Kathryn Bigelow was attached to direct and produce. DiCaprio has been attached since the beginning, originally announced to play Holmes when his production company Appian Way picked up the rights to the book all the way back in 2010.

There has been no word yet as to whether DiCaprio will be in front of the camera for the series. Paramount Television will produce.

The Devil in the White City tells the true story of an architect (Daniel H. Burnham) and a serial killer (Henry H. Holmes) who crossed paths at the end of the Nineteenth Century at the Chicago's World Fair of 1893.

Folks, just wait until you see H.H. Holmes' Murder Castle.

Martin Scorsese (who was attached to direct and produce) and Leonardo DiCaprio (originally on to star and produce) are still involved, though the announcement only now lists them as executive producers, though they may still take more active roles if they like what the show becomes.
