The duo Johnny Depp and Scott Cooper at the AFI Fest

This past nov 8th director Scott Cooper and actor Johnny Depp were at the AFI FEST for telling to everyone why they decided to realize a movie like Black Mass.

The conversation moderated by a reporter of Variety.

Johnny admitted that the movie Crazy Heart directed by Scott Cooper to him a revelation. Johnny added: “Black Mass was such a wonderful piece, a wonderful character study”.

Cooper was shocked by their common interests in film, music and literature. “Johnny is a national treasure”Scott Cooper added satisfied.

Johnny confessed that didn’t read screen directions, revealing to the audience he stopped to reading them a long time ago.

He told to the audience: “Why should I know what’s supposed to happen? I think it should be much more organic than that”.

Again Johnny confessed he doesn’t watch movies.

Who knows if he doesn’t watch movies because there is that predictability that maybe Johnny wants to avoid? The end of a story can be completely different from the one of reality.

Whitey Bulger is a complicated character and criminal.

Johnny wanted to let forget to all the viewers, spectators, first of all that under that heavy make-up and clothes there was Johnny Depp.

“I needed to be able to zone out and tap into this guy because there’s very little footage of this guy”.

Johnny, 12063358_478962692277379_7157559450017715930_n compassionate, told again the audience that he approached “Whitey” _bulger_ 10305170_715174711858233_8488680009552227727_n as a man first of all.

He told: “You can’t approach him as a bad man. You can’t approach him as a criminal. You can’t approach him as whatever you want to call him. You have to approach him as a human being who absolutely was as loyal as he could be to his people, his mother, his community. His business just happened to be what it was, and his business entailed quite a lot of crimes”.

“Whitey” Bulger exists. Someone asked to Johnny if it was more difficult to portray a real character than not a fantastic one.
Johnny said that the main responsibility was “To deliver the character with degree of truth”.

Cooper agreed with Johnny telling that he wanted to make “A film about humans who happen to be criminals”.

Black Mass is based on the book written by Dick Lehr lehr_richard and Gerard O’Neill Gerard O'Neill staffers of the Globe: Black Mass, Black Mass Book Cover Whitey Bulger and a devil’s deal.
