Twilight's Peter Facinelli is developing a film based on Boston mobster Whitey Bulger.

"I'm producing a Whitey Bulger movie based on book Street Soldier with Brookstreet Pictures," Peter Facinelli announced on his Facebook page."

Whitey Bulger, the former mob kingpin accused of 19 murders from the 1970s and 1980s and a raft of other crimes, was arrested last week in California after being on the run for 16 years.

"Street Soldier: My Life as an Enforcer for Whitey Bulger and the Boston Irish Mob" was written by one-time boxer and drug-dealer Edward Mackenzie Jr., with authors Phyllis Karas and Ross Muscato.

No production date has been set.
