Johnny Depp hasn’t exactly wowed anyone these past few years with his outlandish performances. But maybe that’s going to change with Scott Cooper‘s upcoming gangster drama Black Mass.
In it, Depp plays one of the most notorious gangsters of all-time, James “Whitey” Bulger. Depp seems to have completely transformed himself for the role, which isn’t unusual, but for some reason seems all the more effective this time around.
Black Mass also features a stacked cast, which includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Dakota Johnson.
Also, Cooper last directed Out of the Furnace, which was absolutely amazing and should be watched on Netflix now if you haven’t had a chance to see it.
