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.

Were Robin Williams & Johnny Depp Going to Save the World?

Sep 9 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Here at my house, we are still not at a place where we can talk about the passing of Robin Williams with any sort of coherence. It usually just results in one or more of us descending into weepy tears of loss and heartbreak.Like this, but way less attractive.However, there is almost nothing more sad at this point than hearing about all of the amazing projects that could have been, had we not lost Williams too ...

Stan Lee Reunites With ‘Mallrats’ Director Kevin Smith in ‘Yoga Hosers’

Aug 28 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for Smith in film number two, Mallrats, when Lee showed up – as himself – to spout a few gross words of wisdom to our hero, Brodie. Now ...

Into the Woods Photo: Meryl Streep Looks Whacked!

Aug 22 2014 10:33am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We know Meryl Streep plays a witch in Into the Woods, but with a new photo from Disney form their upcoming big screen version of the Broadway musical, she looks a little more whacked than witchy! 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 Streep as the evil ce ...

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 Smith’s ...
