Guy Pearce heading to Black Mass

Guy Pearce looks set to star in crime drama Black Mass.

The Iron Man 3 actor is in talks about joining Johnny Depp in the project, reported Variety.

Johnny is playing convicted murderer Whitey Bulger and Aussie star Guy is tipped to play his brother.

Joel Edgerton also has a part in the film.

Black Mass will focus on Boston crime kingpin-turned-fugitive Bulger, who rose to the top of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List after he went on the run for a decade. He was later captured in California in 2011 and is serving time in Massachusetts state prison for second-degree murder.

Out Of The Furnace filmmaker Scott Cooper will direct.
