Keanu Reeves lands first major TV role in Martin Scorsese murder mystery

Keanu Reeves has established his first major role on American television with The Devil in the White City, a murder mystery produced by Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio.

With John Wick nearing its end with its fourth and fifth chapters, and the low probability of another Matrix movie following Resurrections, Reeves is clearly looking at the future of his career.

While he has appeared on television shows before, such as providing voice work for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures in the ’90s and appearing on Swedish Dicks, he has yet to sink his teeth into a meaty television role, such as Matthew McConaughey with True Detective or Kate Winslet. with Mare from Easttown.

That will change soon: Reeves will star in The Devil in the White City for Hulu.

Plot The devil in the white city: What is it about?

The book’s synopsis describes it as a “gripping, murderous history of the show business that transformed America and ushered it into the 20th century.”

He continues: “The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893 was one of the great wonders of the world. This is the extraordinary story of its realization and of two men whose destinies it links: one was an architect, the other a serial killer.

“The architect was Daniel H. Burnham. He created the ‘White City’, a vast and visionary landscape of white buildings set in an incandescent wonderland of canals and gardens.

“The killer was HH Holmes, a handsome doctor with intense blue eyes, who used the great fairground attraction and his own devilish charms to lure dozens, perhaps hundreds, of young women to their deaths.

“And while Burnham overcame politics, infighting, personality clashes and Chicago’s infamous weather to transform the swamps of Jackson Park into the greatest show on Earth, Holmes built his own building. He called it the World’s Fair Hotel. In reality, it was a torture palace, a gas chamber and a crematorium.”

The Devil in the White City will premiere on Hulu in 2024.
