Having already teamed up for Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island and something called The Audition (?) Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have confirmed that work is in progress on their next project together: The Devil in the White City.
Adapted from the best-selling book written by Erik Larson, it tells the true-life tale of notorious serial killer H.H Holmes, to be played by DiCaprio, who murdered 200 people against the backdrop of the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.
"Right now, there is a script being worked on." Scorsese told reporters at The Toronto Sun
DiCaprio's production company acquired the rights to the book back in 2010, but it has since been delayed due to Scorsese's commitment to his passion project, Silence, which is released in January.
"It was one of the things that I had to stop for the past six months", the director added. "They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way, because it's an extraordinary story."
Speaking about the pair's working relationship, Scorsese said: "We've become very close and we really love hanging out together."
