Anytime Johnny Depp is making a movie that doesn't require feathers or gaudy makeup we're interested, and thus "Black Mass" has our full attention. And the cast for Scott Cooper's film just keeps getting better and better. Jesse Plemons and Juno Temple are the latest aboard the project, joining Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce and Dakota Johnson in the film about notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger. Plemons will break bad again as one of the guys in Whitey's circle, with Temple playing a prostitute. [THR]

Deep breath... Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters, Camille Mana, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste have all joined Jennifer Aniston in "Cake." Daniel Barnz ("Won't Back Down," "Beastly") will direct the film about "an acerbic woman named Claire who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina (Kendrick), a woman in her chronic pain support group. As she uncovers the details of Nina's suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina's husband (Worthington), Claire also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy. Messina will play Aniston's ex-husband who still cares about her deeply, while Huffman will play the facilitator of the support group. Kendrick will appear as a ghost who taunts Claire. Mana will play Claire's nurse, who has no patience for her demands." [The Wrap]

Forest Whitaker is set to join Jake Gyllenhaal in the boxing drama "Southpaw." Antoine Fuqua directs this one about "a left-handed prizefighter who wins a title but suffers a tragedy soon after and must put his life back together to earn the respect of his young daughter." Whitaker will play a former pro, now missing an eye, who trains amateurs. [The Wrap]

Lastly, 50 Cent is joining Paul Feig's comedy "Spy." Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale and Nia Long star in this one, about a CIA analyst who goes in the field for the first time. Production begins this month. [THR]
