Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese’s “Devil in the White City,” was supposed to be their next project together, what with Scorsese crrently putting tthe finishing touches on “The Irishman".” However, it seems that now Hulu will be making it into a mini-series with Scorsese and DiCaprio still involved as producers.
“Devil in the White City,” based on the book by Erik Larson, tells the story of an architect and a serial killer, both trying to leave their mark on the city, and the true events that changed their lives forever at the 1893 Chicago World Fair.”
‘White City’ will be produced by Paramount Television, with an unknown air date on the streaming network Hulu.
Variety did confirm last year that Scorsese and Dicaprio's sixth collaboration together would be "Killers of the Flower Moon" wehich will start production this summer. The film is written by Eric Roth, an Oscar winner for “Forrest Gump.”
The summer 2019 date for production of 'Killers of the Flower Moon' means that Scorsese will most likely be done editing his upcoming gangster drama "The Irishman," with long-time collaborator/editor Thelma Schoonmaker, by then. A possible Cannes premiere in the works?
"Killers of the Flower Moon" is a "crime drama set in 1920s Oklahoma, where the Osage Nation discover oil under their land, only to find themselves being murdered, one by one. As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI takes up the case and unravels a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.
Based on the David Grann's book, the film will be Scorsese and DiCaprio's sixth collaboration together, after "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," "The Departed," "Shutter Island," and "The Wolf of Wall Street."
Meanwhile, "The Irishman" starring Rober De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci will be distributed by Netflix later next year.
