The upcoming Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass, starring Johnny Depp, is filming Porthole Pub & Restaurant on the Lynnway in Lynn this week.

The parking lot was filled with vintage cars from the 70's and state police were controlling traffic through the area while the cameras were rolling.

The film will be shot in the Boston area through Aug. 1 and casting call organizers are looking for "men, women and children of all ethnicities - Italian wise guys, Irish tough guys, politicians and people with cars from the 70s and 80s." 

Interested residents are encouraged to bring a recent photo of yourself along. Download a size card at www.CPCasting.com.
