Depp Drops Out Of Whitey Bolger Biopic?

Johnny Depp has reportedly dropped out of Barry Levinson’s “Black Mass” at Cross Creek and Exclusive Media.

Depp was to have been paid his usual quote of $20 million. However, with little interest in the project from buyers at Cannes, producers sought to trim the nearly $70 million budget.

So, Depp was asked to halve his quote – a request he and his reps refused. With Depp now out, Joel Edgerton’s involvement is also in question at this point.
