Ben Affleck Set to Direct Matt Damon in Whitey Bulger Movie
2:01 pm, October 24th, 2011
Damon is set to play Bulger, Boston’s most notorious organized crime figure.
Affleck and Damon will also produce the film.
Casey Affleck, who worked with his brother and Damon on their smash breakthrough Good Will Hunting, is expected to act in the project.
Bulger, who partly inspired The Departed (also starring Damon), was arrested last June after evading the FBI for more than 15 years.
Besides their successful co-starring turns in Good Will Hunting, Damon and Affleck appeared together in Dogma.
