Lights, camera, action!

Filming begins today (Monday) in Columbus for the Johnny Depp movie “Public Enemies.”

It chronicles bank robber John Dillinger in the 1930s.

Historic Columbus, northeast of Madison, has been made to look like Crown Point, Ind. That’s where Dillinger escaped from jail while awaiting a trial.

Rubber cobblestone has been laid on the downtown streets.

Some of the buildings now have old-fashioned facades and awnings. Big crowds are expected today in a city with 4,500 residents.

Kate Lueders of the mayor’s office calls the transformation “magical.”

There will be at least one day of filming in Columbus and maybe more.

Filming is also expected in Oshkosh, Madison and Milwaukee — plus Illinois and Indiana — before production wraps up in July.

The filming will add an estimated $20 million to the Wisconsin economy.

It’s the first movie to receive new state tax filming credits which took effect in January.

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.
