It was only a matter of time.

Since infamous mobster James “Whitey” Bulger was found guilty of murder and racketeering in August, plans started developing to depict Bulger’s inner circle in at least one TV show and movie.

According to Deadline.com, Ben Affleck plans to direct a movie for Warner Bros about the notorious mobster. Matt Damon is playing Bulger.

An upcoming TV series also was announced.

Fox is developing a limited series based on the life of Eddie Mackenzie, whose “life as an enforcer for the notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger details how he was able to extricate himself from Whitey’s gang without getting himself killed.”

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.

This was more than a movie to Herndon. It was his story.

And he was concerned about what Hollywood had done to it.
