Devil in the white city Movie

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio got the lead role as Dr H.H. Holmes in The Devil in the White City, an upcoming drama thriller movie based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Erik Larson. Set during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, the film - which DiCaprio will also produce - focuses on fair architect Daniel H. Burnham and serial killer H.H. Holmes. The film should be released end of 2011.

"Devil in the White City intertwines the true tale of two men: the brilliant architect behind the legendary 1893 World's Fair, striving to secure America's place in the world; and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death in his elaborately constructed murder castle"

This is a true story: Dr Henry Howard Holmes is one of the first documented American serial killers in the modern sense of the term. Here's a picture of the real-life H.H. Holmes:
