It is a gathering of giants. Keanu Reeves will star in the series Devil in the White City, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and the great Martin Scorsese. Believe it because it’s true.

The book also explores how Burnham’s life intersects with serial killer HH Holmes, who allegedly lured his victims to the “Murder House” during the Chicago fair.

The eight-episode series is expected to premiere in 2024. But the wait will be more than worth it. The production of The devil of the white city has been in limbo for more than a decade, ever since DiCaprio will buy the rights to the book in 2010.
