In the realm of non-fiction literature, Erik Larsen’s book The Devil in the White City has enjoyed popularity for nearly 20 years, telling the stories of both architect Daniel Burnham and serial killer H.H. Holmes during the first half of the 1890s For a long time, Leonardo DiCaprio intended to star in a film adaptation of The Devil in the White City that would have been directed by frequent collaborator Martin Scorsese and written by Billy Ray. While that movie never ended up happening, the streaming adaptation that emerged from the ashes has taken a big step forward with Keanu Reeves taking on the mantle.

Back in 2019, Hulu started developing a series take on The Devil in the White City, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese attached as executive producers. Cut to today, it was announced at during Hulu’s virtual time before the press period at the Television Critics Association’s summer tour that the streaming service has officially ordered The Devil in the White City, and Keanu Reeves will both executive produce it and star as Daniel Burnham. Reeves’ past major TV outings include vocally reprising Ted Logan in the animated series Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures, as well as starring in the short-lived comedy series Swedish Dicks.
