    Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will team up for an adaptation of Erik Larson's study of H.H. Holmes, The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America.

    "DiCaprio will play one of the most prolific serial killers in Chicago history, the 19th century equivalent of Hannibal Lecter."

    I agree about the book. DiCaprio is usually a disappointment though. He'll just be the same character he always is. The Wolf of White City?

    Well, if he's in it, I imagine he'll be playing Daniel Burnham, which wouldn't be much of a stretch from his typical character (confident, stubborn, etc.)
