Hulu confirms Keanu Reeves’ casting in ‘The Devil in the White City’ series- The New Indian Express


LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Keanu Reeves will headline the series adaptation of “The Devil in the White City,” streaming service Hulu announced.

The broadcaster made the announcement during his appearance at the Television Critics Association summer tour, according to media reports.

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio and his frequent collaborator, filmmaker Martin Scorsese, will executive produce the project.

The series, which marks Reeves’ first major role on American television, is based on Erik Larson’s 2003 book and tells the true story of two men, an architect and a serial killer, whose fates are forever linked by the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.

“Follow Daniel H. Burnham, a brilliant and fastidious architect who strives to make his mark on the world, and Henry H. Holmes, a handsome and cunning doctor who created his own drug, Murder Castle” in beautiful grouradhikands, a palace built to seduce, torture, and mutilate young women. The story takes the viewer on a journey through murder, romance, and mystery in the golden age,” reads the official synopsis.

The big-budget project has been in development since DiCaprio bought the film rights to the book in 2010 and previously set it up as a feature at Paramount with Scorsese to direct.

In 2019, Hulu announced that it was working on a series adaptation of the book.

Todd Field is on board to direct the series, which is now a co-production between Paramount Television Studios and Disney’s ABC Signature.

Rick Yorn, Stacey Sher, Field and Mark Lafferty will also executive produce alongside Scorsese, DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Davisson.
