For a show with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio attached, Hulu’s Devil in a White City is seemingly falling apart.
Following Keanu Reeves’ exit last week, the series has now lost director Todd Field according to Variety.
The project, which Scorsese had been trying to develop for 10 years, had just been green-lit by the Disney-owned streamer in August.
Field, who’s latest film Tár has been receiving critical acclaim, was slated to direct the show’s first two episodes.
Now, the show is still expected to enter production in the coming months, and it’s been reported that the studio is still actively looking for an actor to replace Reeves. Aside from being the actor’s first major TV role, trades say it might have also been one of the biggest commitments of his career too.
Based on Erik Larson’s book of the same name, The Devil in the White City tells the true story of two men, Daniel H. Burnham and Henry H. Holmes. While one was an architect, the other was a serial killer, and both of their fates were forever linked by The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893.
