Now city officials in Oshkosh have confirmed several scenes of the Johnny Depp film “Public Enemies” will be shot in their downtown this spring.
But nobody’s saying exactly where.
Director Michael Mann and about 50 department heads walked through the downtown yesterday looking at locations and figuring how to make Oshkosh look like it did in the 1930s.
That’s when John Dillinger was on his bank robbery spree that ended when he was shot to death in Chicago by FBI agents. Depp is to play Dillinger in the film.
The filmmakers have already started work to prepare for filming in Columbus, north of Madison.
Another filming location is the Milwaukee Historical Society, which once was a bank and still has a vintage vault.
