Johnny Depp Plays Boston Mob's Whitey Bulger In 'Black Mass'

Deadline:
Just as Whitey Bulger rose to the top of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List when he disappeared for a decade before he could be put behind bars, the fast mobilizing movie about the Boston crime kingpin just rose to the top of the most wanted list in the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin. That’s because Johnny Deep has become attached to star in the Cross Creek crime thriller Black Mass, with Barry Levinson directing him. The picture is a co-production between Cross Creek and Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Exclusive Media, with the two entities co-financing. Universal Pictures is aboard to release the film in the U.S. through Cross Creek’s distribution deal with the studio, and production is to begin in May. (Barry Levinson, Black Mass, Cinema, Johnny Depp, Universal Pictures)

This sounds like a good one. I liked him in Public Enemies so I'm sure he do good. He likes doing movies that are based on real people.
