Okay so, remember how I mentioned in my first blog that I got to read the script for Black Mass? Okay, so here are the details. Black Mass is Johnny Depp’s new film, in which he will play Boston gangster by the name of Whitey Bulger. The film is an action crime-drama film written and directed by Scott Cooper, based on the 2001 book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob. The script was amazing, so I can only imagine how much better the film will be!
Warner Brothers announced Monday that the film will be released Sept. 18, 2015. The date would appear to make the movie a prime candidate for a debut somewhere on the 2015 Venice/Telluride/Toronto film festival awards circuit. Scott Cooper is directing the crime drama for Warners and Cross Creek Pictures (which is where I’m interning…whoop whoop) It also starts Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple and Jesse Plemons!
