Warner Bros Pictures, “Black Mass” starring Johnny Depp will be holding an open casting call in Boston
The film’s casting directors at CP Casting are looking to fill many roles including some speaking parts, featured extras, bit roles and general extras. They are looking for all ages, types and ethnicities but are especially interested in Italian Wise Guy types, tough guys, politician types and those with Boston accents.
“Black Mass” will begin filming in Boston on May 19 and continue through July 30. Those who apply and are cast for the project need to have availability for daytime filming between mid May and late July.
Photos will be taken at the open casting call and since some of this is for speaking roles, certain people will be given a few lines to read for casting directors.
Johnny Depp stars as the notorious Irish American mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. Whitey was the inspiration for the Jack Nicholson character of Frank Costello in the Martin Scorsese film, “The Departed“. The film is inspired by “Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob“, a New York Times best seller.
The film is about John Connolly and James “Whitey” Bulger, childhood friends who went 2 separate ways but would meet again in the 70′s. John Connolly joined the FBI and worked out of the Boston office and Whitey went on to become a mobster. The 2 struck a dirty deal that led to many murders, indictments and ultimately put Whitey Bulger on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list and sent him underground where he stayed until finally being caught in 2011. Whitey ultimately was arrested in Santa Monica and he was wanted for 19 murders at that time.
Tom Hardy may star opposite Johnny Depp as John Conneley, the FBI agent. Scott Cooper (“Out of The Furnace“) will direct the project.
