Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play H.H. Holmes, a serial killer who masqueraded as a respectable doctor, in the upcoming film The Devil in the White City.
The movie is based on Erik Larson’s book of the same name which takes place during the 1893 Chicago’s World Fair. Holmes created a gas chamber and crematorium near the fairgrounds where he would find victims and lure them back to his hideout in the World’s Fair Hotel.
Since the movie is set in Chicago, does that mean it will be filmed in Chicago as well? Only time will tell. Right now, the plan is to find a writer and then move to setting up production.
