John Wick star Keanu Reeves is best known for his action roles. Now it is certain that he will take on the leading role in a series.
Around 2010, action stars are relatively quiet Keanu Reeves become. It was only with the “John Wick” films that the actor regained public awareness and gained new popularity. Last year he reprized his role as Neo in The Matrix Resurrections, and both John Wick 4 and John Wick 5 are coming. Now the actor is stepping out of the action genre for the first major series role of his career.
As The Hollywood Reporters now officially confirmed, Keanu Reeves will star in the series “The Devil In The White City” to play. This is the film adaptation of Erik Larson’s factual novel of the same name, which takes place during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The focus is on the architect Daniel H. Burnham (played by Keanu Reeves) and Henry H. Holmes, who is often referred to as the first modern serial killer. The latter has often been used in pop culture works, such as in “American Horror Story”. There are even more horror series in our video:
Hollywood Legend Martin Scorsese Produces The Devil In The White City
Behind “The Devil In The White City” there are some big names. Leonardo DiCaprio (“Don’t Look Up”) bought the rights to the book in 2010. The work was originally slated for the big screen, with none other than Martin Scorsese (“The Irishman”) directing. However, this plan was scrapped in favor of a serial film adaptation. DiCaprio and Scorsese will serve as executive producers on the series, as will Keanu Reeves himself.
The first two episodes will be directed by Todd Field (“Little Children”) and scripted by Sam Shaw (“Castle Rock”) and Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips”). The series comes from the US streaming service Hulu and is to be produced with a large budget. Since Hulu doesn’t exist in this country, but the service belongs to Disney, it’s likely that “The Devil In The White City” will appear on Disney+. Since Keanu Reeves is still busy with the “John Wick” sequels, we will certainly have to wait a bit until the series starts.
Keanu Reeves has held up well over the years. Can you still tell his age?
