‘Devil in the White City’ will be Hulu series from DiCaprio, Scorsese

Leonardo Di Caprio and Martin Scorsese

Craig Erwich, senior vice president of originals at the streaming network, announced the news Monday at the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World's Fair Hotel, designed for murder.

The series' executive producers include Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, both of whom have had ties to the book's long trek into live-action.

It's unclear at this time whether or not the actor will now appear in the Hulu series. An earlier adaptation of the story was in the works from Tom Cruise, but fell out of development in 2004.

According to variety.com, DiCaprio acquired the rights to the book almost a decade ago and planned to adapt it for a feature film in which he would portray Holmes.

Veterans will soon have access to VA medical records on iPhone
User data stored on Apple's Health app is encrypted and accessible only to the iPhone user via their passcode, Touch, or Face ID. Soon veterans will be able to access their aggregated records from the VA right from their iPhone's pre-installed Health app.

Personally I'm excited. Scorsese's career precedes him and if the plan here is for him to direct the entire series himself, this could very easily wind up being his magnum opus. "They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way because it's an extraordinary story". Paramount Television will produce.

For years, true-crime buffs have wondered why Hollywood has yet to make a big-budget movie about America's first confirmed serial killers, Henry H. Holmes.

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.
