Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese teaming up again for Devil In The White City

The Wolf Of Wall Street

Hollywood’s most unstoppable filmmaking superteam is getting back together, according to Deadline. Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese—or “Marty” as we call him in The Industry—have announced that their next project together will be an adaptation of Erik Larson’s The Devil In The White City, a non-fiction book that intertwines the stories of Daniel H. Burnham (the man behind Chicago’s 1893 World’s Fair) and H.H. Holmes (a prolific serial killer who may have murdered over 200 people). Scorsese, of course, will direct The Devil In The White City, making this his sixth collaboration with DiCaprio after Gangs Of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf Of Wall Street.

DiCaprio is attached to play Holmes—and has been for almost five years—because apparently he’s just trolling the people who fell in love with him in Titanic now. They’ll still love you, Leo, even if the guy you’re playing in this movie had a “Murder Castle” that was outfitted with a bunch of special soundproof murder rooms where he could kill people (usually women) in horrifying and creative ways. Also, based on Holmes’ picture on Wikipedia, DiCaprio is going to have to grow a sweet mustache for this role. That’ll be cool no matter how many people he kills.
