One of the names that has been associated with the upcoming Star War: Episode VII for months is Jesse Plemons. Along with Girls star Adam Driver, Plemons has formed the core of the casting rumors that have persisted for a long time. But a new report that links the Breaking Bad star to a Johnny Depp movie that is in the works calls into question whether or not he is actually going to be involved.
THR reports that Plemons, along with Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), is in talks to join the cast of Black Mass, a biopic about notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper. Based on Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill’s best-seller Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob, the film stars Depp, Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce, and Dakota Johnson. Sounds like kind of a big deal, right?
