Guy Pearce is in talks to star opposite Johnny Depp in Warner Bros. upcoming true crime thriller Black Mass.

He will join fellow Aussie Joel Edgerton and Johnny Depp on the cast. 

Depp will star as Boston's notorious crime lord turned FBI informant James "Whitey" Bulger, and Pearce will play Whitey's younger brother- Massachusetts political powerhouse William "Billy" Bulger. 

Edgerton is on board to play corrupt FBI agent John Connolly.

The film tells the true story of Boston's violent criminal Whitey Bulger who became an FBI informant.

Scott Cooper (Out Of The Furnace) is in talks to rewrite and direct after Barry Levinson exited the project earlier in the year. 

Pearce and Edgerton previously starred together in Animal Kingdom (2010) and The Hard Word (2002).

Congrats, Guy and Joel!
