Reunited and it feels so fawkin gawd
(this joke is too easy right?)
“We’re doing a Whitey Bulger movie,” Damon says of the leader of South Boston’s Winter Hill Gang, who had been on the lam for 16 years and was wanted for 19 murders, among other things, when he was apprehended in Santa Monica in June. “Warner’s got it for us.”
Damon will star as Bulger, Affleck will direct, and Terence Winter, of The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire fame, is writing the script. Last year, Damon and Affleck cemented a first-look deal with Warner Bros., where their production company is now based.(Via GQ)
Why not. As much as I despise Boston I seem like to like all these movies (The Departed, The Town, etc). And a movie about a young Whitey Bulger (Who Jack Nicholson is based off in The Departed) should have enough coke, hookers, and murder for my taste. So lets go get Cole Hauser and Casey Affleck and put the whole band back together.
