Storyline

John Connolly and James "Whitey" Bulger grew up together on the streets of South Boston. Decades later, in the late 1970s, they would meet again. By then, Connolly was a major figure in the FBI's Boston office and Whitey had become godfather of the Irish Mob. What happened between them - a dirty deal to trade secrets and take down Boston's Italian Mafia in the process - would spiral out of control, leading to murders, drug dealing, racketeering indictments, and, ultimately, to Bulger making the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List. Written by E Anderson and J. Breaux

Trivia

Leonardo DiCaprio's influence may have contributed to director Scott Coopers interest in taking on this project, since DiCaprio had helped produce the Cooper's previous movie Out of the Furnace (2013), and had starred in The Departed (2006), which is based on a Whitey Bulger-like character in Boston.
