A couple of days ago we reported on the news that Leonardo DiCaprio would have the lead role in the film “Devil In The White City”

Leonardo DiCaprio “will play Dr. HH Holmes, America’s first serial killer, in the big screen adaptation of Erik Larson’s 2003 non-fiction book ‘The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair That Changed America.’“

Michael Shamberg, a Chicago native is currently producing the film “Contagion” filming in Chicago.

In an article about “Devil in the white city” in the Chicago Sun Times,  Shamberg stated  “It’s a cool Chicago story, and I’m excited about it being filmed in my hometown.”

“The plan is to start filming as soon as possible,” he said. “The story happened 117 years ago; we’ll have to re-create a lot of the Midway, but there are still three buildings built by architects Burnham and Root still in existence.”

As more information comes in, we will update our information.  As information comes in for casting and extras casting we will also provide that. If you have information you would like to share, you can send us an email to

    Sweet! I was excited when Leo was casted for HH Holmes, because he (HH Holmes) lived in Wilmette about a block away from where I live right now, which means the filming may take place near my house (Contagion is already being filmed at my elementry school, a house two blocks away, and a morgue/funeral home that's a block away from my house) and I recently added my house to the Illinois Film Office, so hopefully I'll get an email or call saying they want to use it :). After all, it *was* built around the time he was living here.

    Lucky you! Sounds very exciting to me and who knows you might be right and they end up shooting near by you or even inside your house. Keep us updated, we'd love to know if you get chosen or visit the film set.

    Will do. Also Contagion is filming a block away from my house in a week or so, also at my elementary school (two blocks away) and a morgue/funeral home a block away.
