It only has two weeks until its US release, but Black Mass starring Johnny Depp has surprisingly removed Sienna Miller from the final cut. Miller, 33, played Catherine Grieg, girlfriend of Depp’s James ‘Whitey’ Bulger, and will still receive her salary for the role.
“It came down to narrative choices,” Cooper, the director, explained to the Boston Globe. Cooper praised Miller as ‘fantastic’ but is said to have felt the scope of the story needed to be narrowed during the editing process.
Black Mass will be released on the September 18, 2015.
