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.

Depp was originally signed on to star in Warner/Initial Entertainment’s ‘Shantaram’ as well as ‘The Rum Diaries’ but with both films postponed Depp has a large opening in his schedule.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Depp and Mann are set to have a meeting this week to discuss the possibility of Depp signing on to the movie. It is said that Depp has his eye on the role of bank robber John Dillinger.

This movie has huge potential, especially if Depp climbs aboard. Along with Mann and Kevin Misher, the executive producers for the film will be none other than the legendary Robert De Niro and his partner Jane Rosenthal.

If all goes well, the film should start shooting in Chicago in March.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
