Black Mass

Ok, so I am not sure it is true, but here you are:

Benedict with Johnny Depp? And they already started filming... I wonder if he is so desperate to do some acting or whether this was this mysterious project he said he was not allowed to talk about.

Re: Black Mass

Well, I certainly hope it's true. I love Johnny Depp!  Having him and Benedict in the same movie would be awesome!

Re: Black Mass

Finally something! Thank you for this excellent news!

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Black Mass

I hope it's true, it would be awesome to see Johnny Depp and Benedict as brothers!

Re: Black Mass

Wow, Benedict would be very busy man in the next few years. But I'm happy, next film to wait for http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

I'm not sure if I find it "awesome" but it would be definitely interesting.
But I need some more to believe it.

Re: Black Mass

I also found some information on this here:

http://cumberbatchforum.tumblr.com/post/86423756376/benedict-cumberbatch-joins-johnny-depp-in-black-mass

There it says that Benedict talked about this project when he visited The Guardian last month.
Well... I'm not particularly keen on Johnny Depp, and the last movies he made were just not my cup of tea. Nevertheless... Benedict seems to be getting very busy now...

Re: Black Mass

...the director definitely sounds promising though, Scott Cooper did "Crazy Heart" and "Out of the Furnace". Haven't seen the second one yet (but read lots of good stuff about it) and loved "Crazy Heart".

Re: Black Mass

Right, that could be true then. Which I would love. Benedict ... acting again. Finally!

Re: Black Mass

And since they seem to have started filming already, Benedict could do this and then wait for Martin to finish Richard and then they could both go back to 221B... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Black Mass

Yes, I would love to see him act again. Does anyone know when the story is set? I googled his character who is 80 this year. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Black Mass

John Connolly and James "Whitey" Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the late 1970s, they would meet again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. What happened between them - a dirty deal to trade secrets and take down Boston's Italian Mafia in the process - would spiral out of control, leading to murders, drug dealing, racketeering indictments, and, ultimately, to Bulger making the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List.
(Source: IMDB)

Release Date seems to be October 2015.

Re: Black Mass

Thank you, Solar. I read that Johnny Depp will be nearly unrecognisable and be as good as bald. So I would say it will be set later in his life when he was hiding from the police and finally convicted and imprisoned. Billy Bulger is five years his junior. 
Ha, I love speculating and then being surprised what they make of it.

Re: Black Mass

Oh, sh**. Gulp. I think this would be the only hairstyle I could not bear. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png

But I think this will not happen. Billy Bulger has very full hair.

Re: Black Mass

Yeah, I'm sure all Johnny Depp fans will be quite thrilled, seeing him like this... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Let's just hope that his brother will look a little bit... different. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Black Mass

Well, when he has full hair now … Sorry for being such a hair fetishist and sorry to all men with a receding hairline - I know it is not your fault - but it is really not very attractive. 

These were my shallow two minutes. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Black Mass

Well, it depends... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png


http://feminspire.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/patrick-stewart1.jpg

But seriously, nothing bad about two shallow minutes. I'll gladly admit that I hope to see Benedict with hair in this (and any other) movie.

Btw, this film is also based on a book:
