Get ready Mass because it’s looking like another Beantown crime drama is in the works. Author Chuck Hogan aka the backbone of Ben Affleck’s hot flick The Town, has signed on to write the script for yet another Boston crime film.
The untitled script will revolve around the Winter Hill gang leader and one of the ten most wanted fugitives, James “Whitey” Bulger, notorious hitman, John Martoranom, and the legal case that exposed the ties between the mob and the corrupt Boston FBI office, according to Deadline. Wait, have we seen this one before?
The flick will be produced by GK film partners, Graham King and Tim Headington. You might remember King from his work with Martin Scorsese on The Departed. GK also produced The Town. Martorano was the governments main witness and GK acquired his rights after he was released after serving 14 years for murder.
As the plot thickens, no production date has been set and no director has been attached. Hogan is currently on the best-seller list co-writing a vampire trilogy with Guillermo del Toro. The pair are working on the final novel and will then look towards bright lights. Don’t forget to become fans of GK Films on FB. Who knows, maybe you’ll even be on set.
Tell us who you think will be cast as “Whitey”? Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio? Yes please!
