[Film Guardian] After facing off against Russell Crowe in 3:10 To Yuma and Heath Ledger’s Joker in the upcoming The Dark Knight, Christian Bale is preparing to go head-to-head with Johnny Depp. The pair will star in Michael Mann’s crime thriller Public Enemies. Bale will play FBI agent Melvin Purvis who led the hunt for the 1930s bank robber John Dillinger, to be played by Depp. Filming is expected to begin in March before a possible actors and directors strike on July 1 forces Hollywood film production to grind to a halt.
Added 80 pictures from latest night, where Johnny was attenting the SW’s Premiere at London.

ITN – Hundreds of screaming fans waited for hours at Narita airport near Tokyo to catch a glimpse of the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Depp plays a serial-killing barber in a grim story of revenge set on the grimy streets of 19th Century London.
The movie sees Depp team up with director Tim Burton once again for the murderous musical.
The pair have worked on several films together including 1990’s Edward Scissorhands and more recently on a remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The film also stars Burton’s other long-time collaborator and real-life fiancée Helena Bonham-Carter, who gave birth to the couple’s second son last December.
Last December 5, Johnny attented a special screening of Sweeney Todd at Paramount Theaters, in Los Angeles. He was awesome and incredible sexy – as always, of course – and I added 148 pictures from this event.
Also, Johnny is on the January issue of US Esquire, and I added the scans to the gallery. The pictures used are SO amazing, totally beautiful!
I added 121 pictures from Johnny at NY Sweeney’s Premiere last night. He was SO SO SO fucking gorgeous in black & red, with a particular shoe. Johnny got style, man!
I hope you enjoy the pictures, I LOVED it!
Johnny Depp’s latest role in the blood-filled ‘Sweeney Todd’ screams ‘Oscar’ and rightfully so, it’s a fantastic movie but surely Depp has had his fill of fake blood? Apparently not as the star is rumoured to be teaming up with producer-director Michael Mann for a film based on the ‘Depression-era crime wave’.
Director Mann has been looking to create a screen adaptation of the nonfiction book “Public Enemies: America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34” by Brian Burrough’s for a while now, with Leonardo DiCaprio previously attached. Now DiCaprio is off on Shutter Island for Scorsese, it seems that Depp is standing up to the plate.

It’s 19th century London and everyone is singing, but when arterial blood sprays from the opened throat of Signor Adolfo Pirelli, you know this is no “My Fair Lady”.
Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”, a savage tale of cannibalism, madness and serial murder, is now Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd”. The show couldn’t have fallen into better hands. With realistic gore replacing the stylistic bloodletting in the stage version, “Sweeney” loses some of its darkly comic tone — not a lot of laughs here except the nervous kind.
First of all, sorry for my late in add this pictures, I save it last week but totally forgot to upload it. My bad…
There’s 17 HQ pictures from Johnny at London Sweeney Todd Press Conference, last November 27.

Johnny Depp enjoyed himself in a rather bizarre manner on the set of his new movie Sweeny Todd by soaking himself in fake blood.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star recently revealed that he really enjoyed filming g ory scenes for the film, as he loved getting drenched in a red liquid.
Depp said that he found it amusing to watch the crew being hit by the red corn syrup mixture used in violent scenes.
“Everyone except me was covered in plastic. It was a bizarre sight. There’d be a countdown – three – two – one… action. Then blammo (sic), a deluge of what looked like blood! Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
It tasted kind of syrupy. It was also oily so it got pretty slippery,” he added.
The London press day for Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd was held today. Set to open on Christmas, Sweeney Todd stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Sasha Baron Cohen.
IESB’s Andy Duke attended the roundtable interviews with Burton, Depp, Carter and Rickman and had a few interesting quotes to share. Complete transcripts are coming soon but here are the highlights!
