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.

Fan Casting The Joker: The Winner

Jul 23 2014 9:07am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Over, out, finito. You, the people of Moviepilot, have spoken and elected your Joker. Not sure if there isn't some irony to be found in the fact that an anarchic super villain gets elected... ANYWAY. Old pro Willem Dafoe beat The Purge creeper Rys Wakefield in a comparatively close vote. Dafoe already has some serious villain credentials, having played the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. It's a surprisingly safe choice in an appropriately weird Joker ...

Review: Lord & Miller's Hysterical '22 Jump Street' Still in on the Joke

Jun 12 2014 3:11pm CDT | Source: First Showing

The 21 Jump Street big-screen reboot shouldn't have worked. In the film, the leads, newly graduated officers played by Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, are told the police department has run out of ideas. Rebranding a once-popular idea was all the creativity the department could muster. That was a message for us, that everyone involved was in on the joke. Even Johnny Depp stopped by to be in on it. Against the odds, 21 Jump Street worked. What do ...

Summer blockbusters make studios happy, but they make stars nervous. That’s because a lizard is the real star of “Godzilla,” not an actor. And in franchises like “Captain America,” “Spider-Man” or “X-Men,” the superhero is the brand, while the casts seem interchangeable. The several tentpoles that emerged from “Pirates of the Caribbean” enhanced Johnny Depp’s... Read more » ...
