Hank Brennan skeptical about Johnny’s movie


A real bomb on the set of Black Mass.

Hank Brennanhank brennan hank brennan 1, Whitey Bulger’s whitey 4attorney working at the appeal for his client arrested on June 22, 2011whitey in jail, on the run for 17 years and wanted for a variety of crimes in South Boston area including different murders, drug trafficking and extortion and caught by FBI agents in California with the long-term companion, Catherine Greiggreig.r , brought to trail in 2013 receiving two life sentences  and convicted because of money laundering, extortion, weapons offenses, racketeering, etc in a recent phone interview with UPI regarding the various productions going on, added regarding the so called and still unnamed movie Black Mass starring Johnny Depp: “If I ever had a comment about the Johnny Depp movie, I would denounce it as fiction. I think the Johnny Depp movie does a disservice, not only to the public, but it does a disservice to the victims’ families” added with force the attorney.

But where are according to Brennan the biggest errors of this movie?

It seems that the main problem for the attorney is not Johnny Depp but the source where the informations were taken for the realization of the movie: Black Mass the Black Mass Book Cover book written by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill.

The attorney in the phone interview with UPI continued:

“I think it is so unfortunate that Hollywood has decided to produce a movie with Johnny Depp based on the book Black Mass. Now, there is a story and a movie to be told, and there is plenty of information that the public needs to know, but when you filter it through a Hollywood production that is based on a book called Black Mass, what you’re doing is distorting the truth because Black Mass was written in the year 2000 and Black Mass was written by authors who previously wrote a book called The Underboss where they glorified [FBI] agents like John Connolly and John Morris, who we now know were corrupt and involved in cases of murder.

And, so, -continued Brennan- the source of those books was the federal government and the federal government is very keen in disseminating propaganda. They are very good at this part of their business and these local reporters would eat it up because it gave them leverage or a benefit or their own legacy in the story, but most of it was absolute fiction. So, when I read those books, I see how much of it is just inaccurate and lies. And what has happened since 2000 is we have learned so much more. … A film like Black Mass ignores what we learned in the congressional hearings about the systemic [government] corruption. It ignores the 19 trials where we see these families fighting to show that the government was responsible for the loss of their loved ones.”

Brennan says he would prefer to see Hollywood make a version that tells the story responsibly.

Yes this is psychologically true: the city of Boston started to be so excited when the news of a very possible second  Warner Bros production Black Mass apart involving Oscar Prizes Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Ben Affleck Matt Damon, born both in Boston was spread in the city. Maybe not the happiest moment for launching a news like that one considering that there is still another production in progress involving Whitey Bulger’s criminal story.

Since there in a way most people are thinking that this second and future Warner Bros production would be potentially stronger than than the one with Johnny Depp.
