Today Boston.com posted the first photo of Johnny Depp in costume as the famous Winter Hill Gang leader Whitey Bulger, who he portrays in the upcoming movie Black Mass.
It is still unclear where the photo was taken. The caption says the photo is from the movie’s “set” on the North End of Boston, but various sources have reported Monday, May 19 will be the first day of filming. The shoot may have been bumped up, or this could have just been a screen test or makeup test.
Whether Monday is the first day of shooting or not, we have learned where they will be. Filming on May 19 is slated to take place around Water St and Taylor St, Boston.
