The movie has a loaded cast. In addition to Depp (playing Bulger), the movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon, Adam Scott, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple and Jesse Plemons.

Scott Cooper is the director in charge of wrangling these talented names.

James Whitey Bulgerís time as a mob boss, criminal mastermind and fugitive from the law contained all sorts of misdirections and bizarre 180s; so, it only makes sense his biopic, Black Mass, would bring some weirdness with it too. With production already under way, Benedict Cumberbatch has reportedly been tapped to play the role of Billy Bulger, the notorious mobsterís politician brother.

While the report doesn't get very specific, apparently the issue is in sorting out the star's deal and that "things arenít looking great at the moment." It's an interesting development given that just two weeks ago the production added Aussie rising star Joel Edgerton to the cast as FBI Agent John Connolly, a childhood friend of Bulger's who tipped the kingpin off when the cops were ready to knock down his door.

Bulger was the inspiration for Jack Nicholsonís character in Martin Scorseseís The Departed. The Mafioso, who spent years on the FBIís Ten Most Wanted list before his capture in 2011, protected the criminals of Bostonís chief neighborhoods, but largely went unbothered because he reportedly worked as an informant to the FBI in exchange for certain freedoms.
