Keanu Reeves fans are in for a treat -- the actor has scored a major role in a new TV series, and backing him are none other than Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Hulu announced Thursday that Reeves will star in and executive produce the streamer's adaptation of Erik Larson's bestselling novel, "Devil in the White City."

According to the streaming service, the book "tells the story of Dr. H. H. Holmes, a serial killer and the man behind the 'Murder Castle' at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, and Daniel H. Burnham, a demanding but brilliant architect who races to make his mark on the world."

The series, written by Sam Shaw and directed by Todd Field, also has an all-star team behind it.

Along with Scorsese, DiCaprio and Reeves acting as producers for the project, other producers include Rick Yorn, Appian Way, Jennifer Davisson, Mark Lafferty and Stacey Sher.

It's not yet clear which character Reeves will play in the series.

At the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Thursday, Hulu also announced its series order for "The Other Black Girl," based on Zakiya Dalila Harris' bestselling novel of the same name, from 2021.

Disney is the parent company of Hulu, ABC News and "Good Morning America."
