Keanu Reeves is now cast on Hulu''s new series adaptation of Erik Larson, which has now received an official approval. The streaming series will feature a slew of historical non-fiction novels. It features Daniel H. Burnham, a talented and ruthless doctor who constructed his own pharmaceutical "Murder Castle," on the fairgrounds, where young women were seduced, tortured and mutilated. The tale takes the viewer on a journey of murder, romance,
Here''s a look at Larson''s historical non-fiction book, which was originally published in 2003 by the Crown Publishing Group.
The architect of Daniel Hudson Burnham, the fair''s brilliant director of works and the builder of many of the country''s most significant buildings, was also Henry H. Holmes, who murdered the young doctor in a shambles at the White City. The result is the fact that two men built a dissection table, a gas chamber, and a 3,000-degree crematorium.
As a result of Burnham''s efforts to transform swampy Jackson Park into the White City, he organized the talents of Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles McKim, Louis Sullivan, and others, and he suited the great fair with his own satanic charms to lure many young women to their deaths. What makes the story so poignant is that Holmes stayed on the lake grounds of that dream city.
Martin Scorsese, Rick Yorn, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Davisson (Appian Way), Stacey Sher, Sam Shaw, and Mark Lafferty are expected to executive produce. Shaw will write and serve as showrunner, while Field will direct.
