A behind-the-scenes look at Johnny Depp’s transformation into Boston’s most notorious gangster, including interviews with Johnny’s co-stars including Benedict Cumberbatch and Joel Edgerton, and director Scott Cooper.
In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster Jimmy Bulger (Depp) to collaborate with the FBI in order to eliminate their common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement while consolidating his power and becoming one of the most ruthless and dangerous gangsters in Boston history.
During a recent interview with our friends at Collider (we follow each other on Twitter. So, the friendship may be fraudulent, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t special) Chris Evans (no, not the new host of Top Gear) spoke about playing Captain America and the possibility of extending his contract.
First of all, Evans confirmed that his current contract ends after Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Part 2.
So IF Marvel wanted to use him, his contract would have to be renegotiated. Here’s what he had to say:
“Listen, if Marvel wants me they got me. I’ve never had such a relationship where you have such—I mean look at my resume, I’m used to being on set being like, ‘Ah is this movie gonna be terrible?’ Marvel just can’t stop making great movies, they do it in their sleep. It’s wonderful directors and producers and actors and scripts, and it’s like a playground as an actor.”
He even spoke about his reluctance to first pick up the Shield. Saying:
“It’s so mind-boggling that I was so tentative in the beginning to jump onboard. What an asshole I would be if I hadn’t done this. I mean can you imagine? Kicking myself—I’d never forgive myself!”
