Leonardo DiCaprio to play serial killer Dr HH Holmes, news for Leonardo DiCaprio will portray Dr. H. H. Holmes,

The Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio will be reunited with famous director Martin Scorsese for a new movie based on a true story. The movie will be an adaptation of Erik Larson’s famous book ‘The Devil in the White City’. This will be the 6th movie of this duo as the fans have already seen them in successful movies like ‘The Departed’, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and ‘Gangs of New York’. The story of this movie is based on the life of a diabolical serial killer in America known as Dr. H. H. Holmes.

The talented actor will be seen as a serial killer in this movie portraying Dr. H. H. Holmes, who was detained for killing mass murdering. DiCaprio bought all the rights to produce this film in 2010. He will play the leading role to bring out the devilish nature of a demon in human body called H. H. Holmes.

The screenplay will be written by Billy Ray, who is well-known for writing ‘Captain Phillips’, ‘Shattered Glass’ and ‘The Hunger Games’.

The teamwork between DiCaprio and Scorsese has got a mixed reaction from the critics, so far. They have been praised for their collaboration in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ and ‘The Departed’. Scorsese won Oscar in the ‘Best Director’ and ‘Best Picture’ category for the latter one. But, the ‘Gangs of New York’ and ‘The Shutter Island’ weren’t that much impressive according to the critics.

Dr. H. H. Holmes is considered as America’s first and may be the most terrifying serial killer. He was from New Hampshire born in a wealthy family. From his boyhood, he showed keen interest in dissection and cruelty. He was thought to be the killer of his own childhood friend. He completed his education in medical science and joined a pharmacy. He opened a hotel which is known as Castle in the 1893’s World Fair. In that murder-house he slaughtered the young women who had come to visit the fair. He killed, dissected, and then burned the dead bodies into ashes in that grim house. Nobody came back alive after entering that horrific house. He confessed that he had murdered 27 women, but the evidence collected from the house clearly showed that possibly 200 women were killed by that demon.

DiCaprio is going to portray the character of this devilish serial-killer.
