Yeah. I've always wondered why Holmes isn't particularly well-known. He never entered the popular consciousness even though his whole MO was pretty much a horror movie. You read about his crimes and it's almost impossible to believe it actually happened. It was like a nineteenth century Saw.

The castle he built to kill and destroy is seriously screwed up. The story cold be really interesting, just not sure Di Caprio is the right choice. I think he is a fine actor, but i have yet to ever see a performance where he has blown me away. For some reason Scorsese is in love with the guy, and thats a shame as De Niro coulod sure use Scorsese to get his groove back.

Still in the hands of Marty i think thisn will be worth watching.
De Niro is with David O. Russell now who is riding Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper into box office and award success. De Niro is fine lol.

I dunno, I really liked Shutter Island as well as Wolf of Wall Street and The Departed.

Seems like this may definitely be the next one in line for Scorsese:

I think the article is only talking about working on the script, not that they will film soon.

The Irishman is supposed to start filming early next year.

The Irishman is such a bland name compared to I Heard You Paint Houses, which just sounds like a Scorsese movie.

I think you're right. Now looking back at other news regarding The Irishman.

Re: Devil in the White City from EP Scorsese/DiCaprio - Hulu

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's The Devil in the White City adaptation is going from a film to a TV series.

Hulu and Paramount Television are developing a small screen adaptation of Erik Larson’s New York Times bestselling nonfiction thriller. The news was announced onstage at the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday.

The Devil in the White City tells the chilling true story of two men, an architect and a serial killer, whose fates were forever linked by The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. Each embodying American ingenuity at the dawn of the 20th century — Daniel H. Burnham, a brilliant and fastidious architect racing to make his mark on the world and Henry H. Holmes, a handsome and cunning doctor who fashioned his own pharmaceutical “Murder Castle” on fair grounds — a palace built to seduce, torture and mutilate young women.

The project has been in development at various studios since 2003. It was previously at Warner Bros, before moving to Paramount — but the studio let the rights lapse in 2004 and again in 2007, as the period setting posed budgetary challenges. At one point, Tom Cruise was to star and produce an adaptation and later Kathryn Bigelow was attached to direct and produce. It wasn't until 2010 that DiCaprio, said to be long fascinated by the dark subject matter, nabbed the rights himself.

Few details about the TV series — including whether or not DiCaprio will take an onscreen role in the series as initially planned in the movie version — are known at this time. In addition to Scorsese and DiCaprio, executive producers will include Stacey Sher, Rick Yorn, Emma Koskoff and Jennifer Davisson.

I hope DiCaprio does it, but I'm guessing he may just exec produce now. It would be odd to see him commit to a series, but he's been so obsessed with this property that maybe...just maybe...he'll do it.
