Leonardo DiCaprio will play the serial killer in The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic And Madness At The Fair That Changed America.
H.H. Holmes, the subject of Erik Larson's book, will be brought to life by Leonardo DiCaprio, in the movie, SPOILER ALERT BUT YOU WONT BE SURPRISED, directed by Martin Scorsese.
The character admitted to killing 27 women, but is believed to have killed 200+ during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.
In the Vanity Fair article, they share this quote that is said to be one of Holmes, showing his nature:
“Yes I was born with the devil in me. I was born with the evil standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since.”
Well, that seems... frightening.
Even more so, the book illustrates the picture of murder by Holmes running a hotel that came loaded with amenities to his needs: a gas chamber, crematorium and a dissecting table - something Dexter would have really loved to have.
No word yet on when the film will be released.
