Whitey Bulger Is Not Happy with Johnny Depp & 'Black Mass'

Johnny Depp‘s new movie Black Mass hit theaters this weekend and is set to do great business at the box office, but James “Whitey” Bulger, the gangster he plays in the film, is not happy with the finished product.

Johnny Depp might as well have been playing the Mad Hatter all over again as far as James Bulger is concerned,” Bulger‘s defense attorney Hank Brennan told People. “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.”

Bulger, now 86, is currently serving two life sentences in a Florida maximum security federal prison and he does not plan on watching the movie if he ever gets the chance.

“The movie missed the real story and instead made a cartoon mockery out of Jimmy Bulger,” Brennan added.
