Guy Pearce Attends Depp’s “Black Mass”

Guy Pearce is in talks to star alongside Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton in Scott Cooper’s James ‘Whitey’ Bulger biopic “Black Mass” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Johnny Depp is portraying Bulger, a Boston criminal who also served as an FBI informant. With the help of his longtime friend and FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), and his brother and former President of the Massachussets State Senate (Guy Pearce), Bulger was able to systematically wipe out his competition.

Production is scheduled to begin this spring in Boston ahead of an October 2015 release.
