Matt Damon is Whitey Bulger when he re-teams with Ben Affleck
"Matt and I have been looking for something to do together for some time," says Affleck. "We've heard about Whitey Bulger since we were kids, and we are excited by the prospect of putting it on screen."
Bulger is the notorious Boston-area crime boss who was on the lam for 16 years until he was arrested this past June in Santa Monica, CA. The Damon/Affleck movie will chronicle Bulger's youth, incarceration at Alcatraz and rise to mob boss while serving as an FBI informant in secret.
