  • Dr. Henry Howard Holmes originally born as Herman Webster Mudgett

It is the latest project for Paramount TV at Hulu following Looking for Alaska, which stars Kristine Froseth and Charlie Plummer and is produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Names like Tom Cruise and Kathryn Bigelow have been attached to the production, but it was DiCaprio who purchased the rights to it in 2010.

Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World's Fair of 1893, nicknamed the "White City" for its majestic beauty.

Based on the book by Erik Larson, it tells the true story of Daniel H. Burnham, a brilliant architect, and Henry H. Holmes, a handsome and devious doctor, who built his own "Murder Castle" in the midst of a fairground.

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.

It was also initially rumoured that DiCaprio had eyed-up the role of Holmes for himself, but it is no longer clear if he or Scorsese will be involved beyond producing roles for the new 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.
