Oh, phew: Whitey Bulger biopic to film scenes in South Boston after all

We were starting to grow worried, what with that bar in Cambridge being remade as the convicted murdering thug's headquarters and all. Southie Spots reports "Black Mass" will actually be filming in the area of E Street and W. 5 Street next Wednesday and on Silver Street between Dorchester Street and F Street on Thursday.

    the film company announced over a month ago all the locations, dates and times they were filming. Actually there are quite a few locations in Southie where they will be filming. Check "Caught in Southie" I believe they posted the schedule.

    I think this topic has just about run it's course. Perhaps it's time for Hollyweird to find another ethnic crime figure.
    One telling aspect of this sad tale is the difficulty for the producers to find enough 'gritty' locations in fashionable SoBo. Cambridge, Lynn etc.
    As the saying goes: "It's time to move on.''
