Leonardo DiCaprio is to team up with Martin Scorsese once again for a brand new thriller The Devil In The White City.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun, Scorsese revealed that the drama will be his next project and he could start work on the story as soon as January.
Asked about the project and how it has fitted alongside his current project Silence, he said: “One of the things that I had to stop for the past six months was my meetings on that script. They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way because it’s an extraordinary story.”
The Devil In The White City is an adaptation of Erik Larson's book of the same name and tells the story of a notorious serial killer and the architect who designed the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.
The movie will see DiCaprio play serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes and will be the seventh time he and Scorsese have collaborated on movie.
