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.
