It was just a matter of time.

Four months after the FBI captured Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger  in California, word has surfaced that a movie will be made based on his life.

The website Deadline New York reports that actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon “are reuniting in their first real picture partnership since Good Will Hunting” to make the movie about Bulger.

Deadline New York reports that Warner Bros will make the film and Affleck will direct, co-star. Damon will play Bulger.

“Matt and I have been looking for something to do together for some time,” Affleck said, according to the website. “We’ve heard about Whitey Bulger since we were kids, and we are excited by the prospect of putting it on screen.”

The movie The Departed, directed by Martin Scorsese, was supposedly inspired by the Bulger story.

Bulger was a fugitive for 16 years.

The website said the new movie will be based on Bulger’s life including his time as an FBI informant, which has long been a sensitive issue within the FBI.
