Black Mass Starring Johnny Depp Box office mega-star and three-time Academy Award nominee Johnny Depp is teaming up with rising star Tom Hardy for his next sure to be incredible project and shooting is expected to begin soon for the based on a true story saga of crime and justice in America. Black Mass will find the two titans of acting prowess at opposite sides of the law in this riveting tale and casting calls for several fantastic roles are set to be held shortly. This is a chance for a number of aspiring actors of all ages to land a part in what could be Depp’s most powerful film yet. Black Mass will tell the gripping story of James “Whitey” Bulger, a career criminal who eventually rose to power as the godfather of the Irish Mob in Boston. In the late 1970’s Bulger made a deal with childhood friend John Connolly (who himself had found notoriety on the other side of the law as a high ranking Boston FBI man) to take down the ruthless Italian mafia that had been terrorizing the city and ruining Bulger’s business. Thanks to Bulger’s less than pristine motives the deal quickly spiraled out of control and lead to a dark, crime ridden time in Boston’s history and to Bulger being put on the FBI’s Most Wanted List and going on the run for decades. This ripped from the headlines story will be based on the novel ‘Whitey: The Life of America’s Most Notorious Mob Boss’ by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill and helmed by up and coming, Independent Spirit Award winning writer/director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out Of The Furnace). Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Neverland, The Lone Ranger) will take the role of Bulger while BAFTA Award Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and there are many more intriguing parts to be filled with more all-star Hollywood talent and up and coming actors like you.
