Although gangster James “Whitey” Bulger hasn’t seen “Black Mass,” a new film depicting his life of crime, he already hates it.
Yahoo News reports he declined to meet with Johnny Depp, who is portraying him in a movie that has had lukewarm reviews.
In fact, Bulger has no plans to watch it, even though the opportunity may never arise since he’s serving two life sentences in prison.
“Johnny Depp might as well have been playing the Mad Hatter all over again as far as James Bulger is concerned,” Bulger’s lawyer, Hank Brennan says. “Hollywood greed is behind the rush to portray my client, and the movie missed the real scourge created in my client’s case, the real menace to Boston during that time and in other mob cases around the country – the federal government’s complicity in each and every one of those murders with the top echelon informant program.”
