    It almost seems redundant after the Departed.

    good to see Johnny Depp doing something different for once though.

    This could be interesting. While it does have similarities to the Departed, I can see how they'd approach this differently, and Bulger evading the FBI for over a decade is an interesting story in itself. It should be a good film for Depp though.

    It'd be nice to see Depp actually act again. Hopefully this is it.

    Ironically I think his last serious performance was another gangster, John Dillinger in Public Enemies.

    Yeah

    Didn't like that movie too much though. I was really hyped for it but it was boring as hell to me

    Okay, can't deny, Depp looks pretty badass right there.

    Looks like a bad ass version of his character from fear and loathing to me there

    Looks great. And agreed, I really hope Cooper got a performance out of him. I love Depp too much to keep seeing him fail. What's worse is that he's a great actor and not only has he had all these consecutive flops, his just isn't inspired anymore.
