Martin Scorsese teases next film with Leonardo DiCaprio

Pair will work together again on big screen adaptation of The Devil in the White City

Martin Scorsese’s latest collaboration with producer-actor Leonardo DiCaprio is not ready to shoot yet but they will soon be making progress soon, Scorsese told Sun Media.

“Right now, there is a script being worked on,” Scorsese said of an adaptation of Erik Larson’s book, The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America. Larson’s tale, based on a true story, entwines the stories of a notorious serial killer and the architect who designed the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago.

“One of the things that I had to stop for the past six months,” Scorsese said about his final push to complete his new spiritual drama Silence, “was my meetings on that script. They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way because it’s an extraordinary story.”

DiCaprio purchased the film rights in 2010. Scorsese said he looks forward to working again with DiCaprio, as they have on past films such as Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street. They share a vision on film and on life, he explained. “We’ve become very close and we really love hanging out together.”

Silence opens across Canada next month.

So excited for this. Plus it's unreal how long Scorsese has been working on his newest/upcoming film "Silence". Unreal. That looks like it'll be an award winner as well.
