Keanu Reeves and Todd Field got out
In fact, the project had been struggling with problems for a long time. Keanu Reeves (58), who originally agreed to play one of the leading roles, left in October last year. Shortly thereafter, “The Devil in the White City” lost its designated star director in the person of Todd Field (59, “Tár”). Attempts to adequately replace the two have failed. Despite this setback, ABC Signature, the television production department, still hopes to eventually find a home for the miniseries on another streaming service.
According to the report, DiCaprio had already acquired the rights to the book of the same name by Erik Larson (69) in 2010. Initially, the plan was to adapt the bestseller into a film that Scorsese would have directed. Finally, in 2019, it was announced that Hulu wanted to turn the template into an expensive series.
