Johnny Depp lands Black Mass role

Feb 4 2013, 2:25am CST | by

Johnny Depp is to star in 'Black Mass'.

The 'Dark Shadows' actor will reteam with his 'Donnie Brasco' director Barry Levinson to portray notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the forthcoming crime thriller, Deadline reports.

The movie takes its title from Dick Lehr and Gerald O'Neill's 2001 book 'Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob' and it promises a ''highly complex'' story examining an FBI scandal.

Producer Brian Oliver said: ''I could not be more thrilled to have the biggest star in the world and Academy Award-winning director Barry Levinson to finally bring this incredible story to the big screen.

'''Black Mass' expertly details the twists and turns of this highly complex story, painting a vivid portrait of Boston's underbelly and its corrupt political machine, as well as exposing the worst scandal in FBI history. It's also an examination of loyalty to family, Irish heritage, and South Boston.''

The film is scheduled to begin shooting in May, but does not yet have a release date.

Meanwhile, 'Argo' filmmaker Ben Affleck is also working on his own movie about the mobster, which has his longtime friend and collaborator Matt Damon attached to play the lead role.

We were pretty darn impressed with that photo of Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and the Into the Woods teaser trailer is truly compelling (even without any musical numbers), but there is something about the below photo of Stre ...

Kevin Smith scores a star for his latestThough Kevin Smith has worked with big stars in the past – your Ben Afflecks, your Matt Damons – they were usually people he knew way back when, before they became household names. And after his bad experiences with Bruce Willis on Cop Out, we didn’t expect him to be collaborating with someone at Johnny Depp’s level any time soon. But the Pirates Of The Caribbean star is front and centre for Sm ...

Terry Gilliam Says ‘Don Quixote’ Is Now About “How Movies Can Damage People”

Aug 11 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Slash Film

If anyone knows how movies can damage people, it’s Terry Gilliam. The director has battled over many a film in his time. He fought Universal brass over Brazil, and Columbia over The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Most catastrophically, he battled weather, disaster, and illness during the original shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Gilliam lost that fight, but he has been trying to make new versions of the film for several years. Every time Don Quixote comes up for Gilliam, i ...
