Has any one heard anything about his new movie, Public Enemies? He is playing gangster John Dillinger! I just saw a picture in the new People magazine of him transformed into this 1930's ganster! HE IS AMAZING! This post was modified from its original form on 28 Mar, 17:09

I was excited to learn about the movie.

Hey, Debbie...where have you been? I think Johnny looks great clean shaven. I have to post the pick of him walking up some stairs...he's so adorable, even if he is playing John Dillinger.

Thanks for the wedding date, Sam. They make a great couple...and to think, I read somewhere that he fell in love with Vanessa's back...first, then after she walked toward him, he just knew! I think that's .

I just finished watching Sweeney Todd...it's a shocker. We all deserve to die...the end was...really sick! Burton does have a dark side.

He gained his reputation (and the nickname “Jackrabbit” ) for his graceful movements during bank heists, such as leaping over the counter (a movement he supposedly copied from the movies) and narrow getaways from police. His exploits, along with those of other criminals of the 1930s Depression era, such as Bonnie and Clyde and Ma Barker, dominated the attentions of the American press and its readers during what is sometimes referred to as the public enemy era, between 1931 and 1935, a period which led to the further development of the modern and more sophisticated FBI.

If you don't already know a little about the demise of Dillinger...he was given up to the FBI by his girlfriend (who was Romanian) for the promise of American citizenship. She did so by attending the movie theatre with Dillinger and wearing a bright red dress, so she could easily be spotted amongst the crowd, giving Dillinger up to the authorities. He was shot three times, one in the heart.

This betrayal is supposedly is where the term ‘lady in red’ comes from.

Really exciting project right here and it should probably see Michael Mann change the directing style we have seen him utilise in his last two movies COLLATERAL and MIAMI VICE. I’m guessing this one will have more of a nostaligic 50’s era/gangster style, than the very modern and shaky cam technology he has been playing around with recently.

This surely is one of the more interesting projects that has come together because of the strike.

 Kidnap Depp just before his wedding. That's wishful thinking. Just don't tie him to a ship mast and let a giant octopus swallow him!  I guess that's been done. Will you make him your sex slave? Sorry...that's none of my business...please, promise that you won't break his legs so he can't go anywhere...like what happened to the writer in Stephen King's book 'Misery'. I don't want him to be in any pain! Geeze, what happened to him at the ending of Sweeney Todd was really awful!  Poor demon of Fleet Street.

ok i would never do any of those things to him its 13 days before his wedding and 2 of his fans try to find him no leads except wat the police gave them not literally but from the tv it involves the viper room a mansion and even drunks

Wow! I think that's the first picture of Dillinger I've ever seen! Johnny is sooooo much more handsome than he was!

7 years ago

So true, Rhonda...but from that picture of Johnny...I think that I can see in him, what similarities the director Michael Mann sees between Depp and Dillinger...and we all know what a rebel Johnny is inside...look at what he wears. He doesn't give a ratz___ about what people think or say about him. I admire a man who is true to himself.

Public Enemies is currently filming in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Last night my husband and I happened to go downtown to see what was happening, and we found ourselves in a queue for a meet and greet. We not only got to see him, but we got to shake his hand and talk with him.  He's much shorter than I expected, by the way.  We managed to get quite a few pictures, but I can't figure out how to post them.

 

Public Enemies is the story of John Dillinger's 1934 crime spree.  The scenes being shot in Oshkosh represent events that took place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and in Racine, Wisconsin.  Our downtown area has been transformed with new storefronts and rubber cobblestone streets.  The crew members have been friendly and the entire production has brought a new light to our town.

You are SOOOO LUCKY!

DA-YAMN! Why couldn't Dillinger have had his bank robbing spree in Podunk, Pennsylvania, so I could get a chance to see THE DELICIOUS DEPP?

 

Add the pictures to your Care2 profile gallery! Then you can copy them and paste them to these forums! Be sure to have the pic at it's largest shot by clicking on it once you've uploaded it to the gallery! Or just let us know when you've created the album in your photo gallery and we'll come visit!

How tall is he d'ya think? About 5'8" or 5'10" ?? Just curious. Cause Vanessa must be tiny, then...by their pictures together.

The filming last night was out of town, on my running route, I later found out. Today they're shooting scenes that take place in Sioux Falls. Since I have a job and all, I haven't had a chance to gawk AND create a photo album. Work sure gets in the way of fun.

I'd say Johny was about 5'9" or 5'10". I was standing on a little incline, but he was wearing a hat. He's no Liam Neeson, anyway.

Public Enemies update
7 years ago

More shooting yesterday, literally. If you're really interested in the movie, please go the www.thenorthwestern.com. There are plenty of videos, pictures and articles. My friend wanted to meet Johnny last night, so I went along. The crowds were frighteningly large, and pushy and noisy as well. It was not the pleasant experience of Monday night. I did overhear a crew member say that "when JD is here, CB usually isn't, and when CB is here, JD isn't," so we didn't get to meet Christian Bale. Our husbands, sitting at a nearby drinking establishment, did get to see director Michael Mann. I mostly got to see the backs of the heads of a lot of pushy girls who squealed stupid things like, "We love you, Johneeeee!" No wonder the guy is so concerned about safety. He turns people into blathering morons.

7 years ago

Well, as much as I love him...I wouldn't be a blathering idiot!  But who knows how I'd be...if I actually got the chance to meet him. I've already kissed him in my dream. So we're like, practically best friends.  Ahhh, the fantasy world.

 

Thanks, for keeping us up on the latest Depp happenings.

Okay, this is my third attempt to post this: I've put together an album of photos from the Public Enemies shoot. Some photos I took and some are from the local newspaper--they of course had better access than I did. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Cool! Thanks, Dawn!
