A long-awaited series called The Devil In the White City is officially on its way with Keanu Reeves starring. It was announced today that Reeves would star in Hulu’s adaptation of Erik Larson’s book, which tells the story of serial killer Henry Holmes and 1893’s World’s Fair.
As Daniel H. Burnham, Reeves will play “an ambitious and visionary architect who strived to make an impression with the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.” Holmes is yet to be cast as the famous creator of a “Murder Castle” near the Fair. Since 2010, DiCaprio has owned the rights to the novel with an eye on starring and Scorsese directing the adaptation.
It was brought to Hulu in 2019. As Reeves’ first major US television role, the eight-episode series is set to begin shooting next year for an upcoming launch in 2024. The series is written by Sam Shaw, and Todd Field will serve as showrunner and director. The project is executive produced by Scorsese, Rick Yorn, DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson, and Mark Lafferty, as well as Stacey Sher, Lila Byock, and Mark Lafferty.
