Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese to re-team for TV series

Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese to re-team for TV series

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the news was announced by Hulu and Paramount Television onstage at the Television Critics Association press tour early Monday.

Tom Cruise was at one point attached to star, and another version was set to be directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

Leonardo DiCaprio acquired the rights nearly 10 years ago, with plans to adapt the story into a film in which he would star as the main character, Holmes.

It's unclear at this time whether or not the actor will now appear in the Hulu series. "The architect was Daniel Hudson Burnham, the fair's brilliant director of works and the builder of numerous country's most important structures, including the Flatiron Building in NY and Union Station in Washington, D.C. The murderer was Henry H. Holmes, a young doctor who, in a malign parody of the White City, built his "World's Fair Hotel" just west of the fairgrounds-a torture palace complete with dissection table, gas chamber, and 3,000-degree crematorium".

Nothing is official yet, of course, but we have a good reason to believe that all of this may come true at the end. However, the post has since been taken down, but not before fans took plenty of screenshots of the supposed flub.

There has been no word yet as to whether DiCaprio will be in front of the camera for the series. Paramount, the studio that owns the rights to the book, is producing the web series.

Martin Scorsese (who was attached to direct and produce) and Leonardo DiCaprio (originally on to star and produce) are still involved, though the announcement only now lists them as executive producers, though they may still take more active roles if they like what the show becomes.

Notorious Chicago killer H.H. Holmes - who may have murdered several people in his Englewood "Murder Castle" in the late-1800s - is finally getting the full dramatic treatment.
