Cross Creek Pictures a loving reality of creative people

In an interview appeared on Hollywood Reporter the two producers open their heart about Black Mass and their expectations

Hollywood Reporter published an interview last 8/27/2015 with Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson the producers of Cross Creek Pictures.


It was more than a year and half ago, when the Cross Creek Pictures was asking at the local population in the area of Boston if, for case there was someone with a house with, still, an old-fashioned kitchen of the 70s-80s for filming some scenes of the biopic movie Black Mass, directed by Scott Cooper and starring Johnny Depp in the role of the mobster Whitey whitey 4Bulger …Great memories.

The Cross Creek Pictures was founded in 2009 cross creek pictures by Timmy Thompson.

Black Mass, told the producers has been a movie with a budget of $60 million.

Thompson revealed he keeps a poster in office of the new coming soon movie Black Mass autographed by Scott Cooper, the director.

The producers producers black mass 2-crop, a copy of Black Mass, the one with the green cover Black Mass on the table in their office said that they bought the rights of the book written by Dick lehr_richard Lehr and Gerard O’Neill the Boston Globe logo-bg 10929555_421228288050820_5264084193313585513_n 11143680_421228264717489_8379124047041460925_n reporters and writer of Black Mass: Black Mass Book Cover Whitey Bulger, the FBI and a devil’s deal something like ten years ago.

What it was crucial and unexpected was the so-called by the producers “third act” of Whitey’s story: the capture of the famous mobster in Santa Monica on june 2011. whitey

The necessity of producing the movie at that point as soon as possible fighting against the time and…”The two of Boston”;-) as I call them: actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Ben Affleck and Matt Damon 2-crop, from years with a script written by the two old friends.

Being Bostonians, telling Whitey’s story a necessity because a story surely captivating, because Boston is their city and this chapter can’t be ignored and because Bulger has been anywhere, in literature, books, in movies like The Departed in these past decades.

Johnny johnny_depp_20 will go to Venice and Toronto for the promotion of the movie.

The producers appear optimistic, because of the chemistry between Scott Cooper and Johnny 22_20 Depp and because this time Johnny Depp’s role is very different from the ones we have seen him during this past decade.

Sure: Johnny has a wig with white hair (the nickname of Whitey was born because of the color of his hair and he doesn’t particularly love to be called “Whitey”) and sure he wears blue lenses because Whitey’s eyes are blue and Johnny’s skin is white because Bulger is irish but this transformation is pretty normal.

This role is real, the story is real, the mobster is still alive, 85 years and convicted in a prison in Florida. All the main protagonists of the story are alive.

The ones killed by the Winter Hill gang and by Whitey Bulger or other affiliates were real people.

This time and thanks to Black Mass you will see what happened in Boston and South Boston during the 70s, 80s.

It will be strong because non-fiction and still “fresh” and I am sure it will be difficult for someone because this one is not yet a “cold story”, a “cold case”.

So, no, no one is waiting for another flop, and let’s hope that “the luck of the irish” and Boston will help this production.

Good Luck to Black Mass and may be Boston the new re-start for Johnny! Bostonian’s accent or not 😉
