This book ,The Devil In The White City, published in 2003 by Erik Larson, is being adapted into a movie. Leonardo DiCaprio bought the rights to the book in 2010. The movie is in development with Martin Scorsese signed as the director. Leonardo will play Dr.H.H. Holmes, "the most notorious serial killer in Chicago history". This is the historical fiction story of Dr. H.H.Holmes whose real name was Herman Webster Mudgett (May 16, 1861 – May 7, 1896). He built The Murder Castle in Chicago about the time of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. He was convicted of one murder for which he was hanged in 1894. He could of killed anywhere from 20 to 200. His "Castle" is, if nothing else, intriguing with sound proofed bedrooms, vent where gas would come into the rooms, stairways that ended abruptly, and, with a basement full of huge furnaces, acid baths and lime pits to get rid of the murdered bodies. There have been many tv shows, movies and documentaries done about this character. I will be interested to see what they do with Leonardo playing the villain.

I read about Holmes many years ago and recently watched a documentary on him.

I like Leonardo's movies. They were all good. I will be waiting for this new movie of him. Hope this will be available in our country much earlier.

I heard that DiCaprio would also be in Quentin Tarantino's Manson movie (that's what I had thought when I read your title). He's a good actor - he never disappoints!
