Matt Damon & Ben Affleck together Again in Bulger

Bulger, now 82 years old, is a former organized crime figure from Boston, Massachusetts. He was said to be a "Robin Hood"-style social bandit who targeted drug kingpins and illegal gambling operations. Beginning in 1975, Bulger served as an informant for the FBI, which ignored his organization in exchange for information on the Italian American Patriarca crime family.

In 1994, there was a pending indictment under the RICO act, causing Bulger to remain at large for 16 years. Bulger was arrested on June 22, 2011 on 19 counts of murder in Santa Monica, California. He has not sought bail and remains in custody at the Plymouth County House of Correction in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Damon will portray Bulger. Both Affleck and Casey Affleck will co-star in the film, written by Terence Winter. Affleck will also be sitting in the director’s chair, but will also be producing along with his friend Matt Damon.

Affleck and Damon are producing under their production company, Pearl Street Films, through their first-look deal with Warner Bros.
