Actor James Russo is set to reunite with his Public Enemies co-star Johnny Depp in Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass.

The star, who also appeared in Donnie Brasco and The Ninth Gate with Depp, will play U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Scott Garriola, who ran the FBI's fugitive task force in Los Angeles when the Massachusetts gangster was arrested in 2011, according to TheWrap.com.

Black Mass isn't the only film based on Bulger's life story in development - Matt Damon is also set to star as the crime lord in a new project directed by his pal Ben Affleck, while Twilight actor Peter Facinelli is set to star in a TV adaptation of Edward MacKenzie and Phyllis Karas' book Street Soldier: My Life as an Enforcer For Whitey Bulger and the Boston Irish Mob.
