Martin Scorsese will resume his creative partnership with Leonardo DiCaprio with his next film, The Devil in the White City.
The veteran director, who will release the Liam Neeson-starring Silence this week, has revealed which project he’ll be working on next, with biopics of Frank Sinatra and professional daredevil Evel Knievel also in the works.
Speaking to The Toronto Sun, Scorsese said that in January his focus will return to the adaptation of Erik Larson’s 2003 best-selling novel The Devil in the White City. “One of the things that I had to stop for the past six months was my meetings on that script,” he said. “They want me to start again in January and see if we can find a way because it’s an extraordinary story.”
DiCaprio is set to play the role of the novel’s serial killer, Dr. H. H. Holmes. Should everything go to plan, it will be the seventh time that Scorsese and DiCaprio have worked together as director and actor respectively. The partnership began with 2002’s Gangs of New York, and includes The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Meanwhile, Scorsese will digitally re-age another of his favourite actors to work with, Robert De Niro, in a new film. Read more about the upcoming gangster movie The Irishman here.

DiCaprio will also produce the still-untitled biopic about Sun Records founder Phillips, the rock pioneer who produced landmark records by Presley, Johnny Cash,Carl Perkins and many more, reported Deadline.
The Paramount Pictures film is based on the Peter Guralnick’s book ‘Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘N’ Roll’. Jagger will hold a similar role in helping to foster the Phillips story to the silver screen as the Rolling Stones singer played on the HBO music drama ‘Vinyl’.
Phillips founded the Memphis-based Sun Records in 1952, setting up the famed Sun Studio, where Presley laid down his earliest recordings, including first single ‘That’s All Right’, considered one of the earliest rock n’ roll releases.
In addition to his string of hits on the Sun label, Phillips also oversaw the legendary and impromptu Million Dollar Quartet session in December 1956, when Presley, Cash, Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis performed together. Phillips, who also championed for integration in the 1950s, died in 2003.
