Keanu Reeves in talks to headline series adaptation of The Devil In The White City

The series is produced by Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Todd Field and Sam Shaw

Published: 04th January 2022

The Matrix-star Keanu Reeves is in negotiations to star in the series adaptation of The Devil In The White City. The series is produced by Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Todd Field and Sam Shaw.

Erik Larson’s 2003 book tells the true story of two men, an architect and a serial killer, whose fates were forever linked by The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. While the brilliant and fastidious architect, Daniel H Burnham, races to make his mark on the world, a handsome and cunning doctor named Henry H Holmes fashions his own pharmaceutical “Murder Castle” on fairgrounds – a palace built to seduce, torture and mutilate young women. The story takes the viewer on a tour of murder, romance and mystery in the gilded age.

The project, which would mark Reeves’ first major American television role, has been in various stages of development since Leonardo DiCaprio bought the film rights in 2010. The project was previously set as a film with Martin Scorsese attached to direct.

Keanu, who was recently seen in The Matrix Resurrections, will soon be seen in John Wick: Chapter 4. The actor also voices a character in DC League of Super-Pets
