Leonardo di Caprio will reunite with Martin Scorsese with ‘The Devil in the White City’ film adaptation after finishing ‘The Revenant’ movie
Characters will be brought to life by one of the most sought-out Hollywood actors Leonardo Di Caprio in his recent film projects. The actor and environmentalist will star in "The Revenant", which is based on a true to life story, and "The Devil in the White City", a film based on a non-fiction book.
Leonardo Di Caprio will portray the role of a serial killer in "The Devil in the White City". STL Today reports that the said film is adapted from Erik Larson's book "Devil" which is set at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Di Caprio will reunite with Director Martin Scorsese whom he has worked with in past movies such as "The Wolf of Wall Street".
Another recent project of Leonardo Di Caprio is the real life-based movie "The Revenant" which tells the story of Hugh Glass, a 19th century explorer. Daily Mail reports that Di Caprio has been shooting the film for seven months amid tough climate conditions in Canada. The 40-year old actor actually had to grow a full beard for his role. Di Caprio's character treks hundred miles into the wilds for vengeance and emancipation. He is vying for an Oscar role for the film which will be shown this coming December 2015.
Aside from the cold climate, what made the shoot more exhausting was a reported conflict with Oscar-award winning director Alejandro Innaritu (Birdman) and a disappointment from the crew, says The Nation. However, it seemed that the cast and crew were able to stand the test. Di Caprio was scheduled to shoot a final battle scene in a snow in Argentina this month which will be finally followed by post production.
Leonardo Di Caprio hopes that working with the best directors would make his films "The Devil in the White City" and "The Revenant" as realistic as possible.
