Following “Transcendence,” Depp will star in “Black Mass” which Barry Levinson will direct. The story is based on “Black Mass: The True Story of the Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob” by Boston Globe reporters Dick Lehr and Gerald O’Neill which follows the life of Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger.The film will be produced by Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson along with John Lesher via his Le Grisbi Productions and Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Exclusive Media, with Cross Creek and Exclusive Media co-financing.
