Edgerton Joins “Black Mass,” “Double Hour”

Australian actor Joel Edgerton (“The Great Gatsby,” “Warrior”) is keeping busy and is up for two more projects.

First up, he’ll team with Michelle Williams on Joshua Marston’s remake of Italian thriller “The Double Hour”.

The story follows two lovers who find themselves victims in the midst of a well-executed robbery.

He’s also scored a major role in Barry Levinson’s Whitey Bulger biopic “Black Mass”.

Edgerton will play FBI Agent John Connolly who was tasked with bringing down the Italian mob with the help of Bulger (Johnny Depp). He was eventually convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice.
