From Depp to Hardy: 9 actors playing notorious real-life gangsters

23 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp was recently photographed in full prosthetics to play real-life Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger in the upcoming movie Black Mass.

The 50-year-old actor was wearing a balding wig cap, fake teeth, a blue open shirt with a gold chain, and a black leather jacket as he shot the film's final scenes in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Benedict Cumberbatch recently joined the cast as Whitey Bulger's brother Billy Bulger, along with Parks and Recreation's Adam Scott, who is reported to be playing FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick.

The Scott Cooper-directed crime drama is due for release in cinemas on September 18, 2015.

Bulger spent 16 years at large and 12 years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list before he was arrested in June 2011, aged 81. Prosecutors indicted him for 19 murders and he is currently serving two life terms.

Here are 9 other actors morphing into some of the world's most notorious real-life gangsters below: »

Spy Thriller ‘China Black Chamber’ Gaining Momentum

28 May 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shanghai-based Fundamental Films and Mark Johnson’s Gran Via Prods. are moving forward on period spy thriller “China Black Chamber.”

The companies have hired the writing team of Stephen Rivele and Chris Wilkinson, whose credits include “Ali” and “Nixon,” to rewrite the script. The project is a true story-thriller about a Us spy recruited by the Chinese to infiltrate Japanese intelligence in 1938.

“China Black Chamber” was announced in September as the first project in Fundamental Films’ plan to co-produce a slate of English-language themed movies, casting a combination of top Chinese and U.S. talent as part of its strategy of making commercial European and American films with budgets upwards of $20 million.

Gary Glushon is overseeing the project for Fundamental while Mark Ceryak, Tom Williams and Monte Young are overseeing for Gran Via.

Johnson (pictured above with his wife) has extensive producing credits including “Rain Man,” the “Narnia” franchise, “Donnie Brasco, »

Oscar Predictions & Curiousities : Visuals & Score

19 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I haven't forgotten about the Oscar charts. This first installment is the most time-consuming is all, as it sets the templates up for an entire years worth of handwringing and hiearchy juggling. With this latest update we only have the "big eight" categories left to do (minus actor & supporting actress which we've already surveyed). But here are a few thoughts on new charts that are up...

WarDaddy's (Brad Pitt) team in "Fury". The film is scored by Oscar-winner Steven Price

Score

I perhaps overstate the music branch's love for their favorite sons each year. It's not that that love isn't evident each year (stop to consider how many composers, for example, have 8 or more nominations and how rare that is in many other fields) it's that Hollywood's favorite composers are quite prolific so, John Williams & Alexandre Desplat aside (who never miss for a nomination)  aside, there's no guarantee that any »

McConaughey and Leto Poised to Make History on Oscar Night

As much as we talk about the stats and trends of the Oscars, each year of the awards seems to present us with a new piece of history. This year, Dallas Buyers Club could make history as the first film to win both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a film that did not receive a Best Director nomination. While Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto seem to be locked into their wins, this did provide an interesting jumping off point to look at the recent history of this category.

Here are the films in the past 25 years that have managed a Best Actor and Supporting Actor nomination:

1989: Driving Ms. Daisy – Morgan Freeman and Dan Ackroyd

1991: BugsyWarren Beatty and Ben Kingsley/Harvey Keitel

1992: UnforgivenClint Eastwood and Gene Hackman

1992: The Crying GameStephen Rea and Jaye Davidson

1993: Schindler’s »

Scott Cooper Negotiating to Take Over 'Black Mass' Duties from Levinson

14 January 2014 3:38 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Barry Levinson, the man behind Good Morning, Vietnam, Rain Man, Bugsy and more, last directed the dull found footage thriller The Bay. The film had its supporters, but trust me, it wasn't any good. Since then he's been attached to the Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass, which I featured on my list of most anticipated films of 2014 and again this morning in my list of book adaptations heading to the screen this year. Well, scratch any hope of it hitting theaters this year and it appears scratch any hope of Levinson directing. Levinson's film was expected to feature Joel Edgerton while Johnny Depp as original slated to star, but then bounced, allegedly over money. Rumors of Depp bouncing on the project and off again persisted, but it seems the camel's back has broken. A new report from Deadline suggests Levinson is off the project, Depp may actually be back on and Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, »

Since 1988, there have been 30 instances where the actor and supporting actor for the same film were nominated.
