          This is the "thriller" that I've been looking forward to.....well, as long as they get a great director.

          I'm reading this book right now and let me tell you, if you dont know who HH Holmes is, you will soon enough. He was one sick son of a bitch who built an entire hotel, custom-made to suit his murderous needs, with secret rooms, shoots to throw the bodies down and even a furnace to burn bodies in the bottom foundation. To put that sick f*ck into perspective, Jack the Ripper who was doing his sick killings right around the same time, killed around 11 people (and everyone knows who he is) whereas HH Holmes killed a confirmed 27 people.....and is estimated to have killed around 200 people in his hotel, which was built to accomodate the Chicago World Fair Circa 1893.

          While I dont like exploiting real life deaths, I have to admit that for a non-fiction thriller, this one has a lot of potential to adapt well to the big screen.

          I'm pumped to see Leonardo finally take on the role of a bad guy (I know that he will do the same in Django Unchained....but this is pretty extreme).

          Leo has a past of choosing projects based heavily on who is directing them. Therefore, I'm really hoping that Leo will continue down that path and convince someone like Martin Scorsese or even David Fincher to direct this project.
