While most of the Region was still sound asleep in warm beds, some 75 area residents gathered under a bright moon in 20 degree temperatures early Monday in hopes of doing a little star gazing.

Movie star gazing, that is.

Actor Johnny Depp is playing John Dillinger in the biopic “Public Enemies” filming this week in the outlaw’s old haunts in downtown Crown Point.

By 5 a.m., a group of nearly 50 people gathered behind an orange snow fence across Main Street from the old sheriff’s house and Hall of Justice just south of the courthouse square hoping to catch a glimpse of Depp. By 9 a.m., the crowd had grown to a few hundred. Read More

    This photos represents our first glimpse of Johnny Depp in the role of 1930s bank robber John Dillinger in Michael Mann’s film PUBLIC ENEMIES. Filming began yesterday, March 17, 2008, in the small town of Columbus, Wisconsin, where crews have been busily recreating the ambience of 1933 along East and West James Street. One of Dillinger’s bank robberies will be staged at West James Gallery, a beautiful vintage building which, in Dillinger’s time, housed the First National Bank.

    Added 15 pictures from yesterday at PE set.

    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.

    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.

    Johnny Depp is holding auditions to find writers for his latest movie Dali, reports say.

    The actor is keen to find the best possible script for the film, in which he plays Spanish artist Salvador Dali.

    A source is quoted as saying: “He’s open to working with anyone – from housewives to pensioners – if the script is right.”

    Al Pacino and Peter O’Toole are also in talks to portray the surrealist painter in upcoming movies Dali and I and Goodbye Dali respectively.

    Dali died of heart failure in 1989, aged 84.

    NOTE FROM THE WEBMASTER: I’m receiving hundred of emails about this. I don’t have an address where the scripts can be sent, or if this news is really true. Any news on this will be posted on the main page.

    Johnny Depp, aka John Dillinger in the Universal film “Public Enemies,” is hitting Crown Point this spring reportedly to reprise the gangster’s bold 1934 escape from Lake County Jail.

    The scene will be shot on location at the Old Sheriff’s House and Jail, 226 S. Main St., sources said. Universal declined to comment on specifics.

    The front part of the Second Empire-style building housed the top cop in Dillinger’s era. The back holds the cells from which the bank robber fled in broad daylight.

    dillinger-jail.jpgDates for the Crown Point shoot are under wraps. But director Michael Mann has targeted the old Lake County Criminal Court, 220 S. Main St., as his headquarters during a three-day stay. Reborn the Hall of Justice Bar and Ballroom in the early 1990s, the jail’s neighbor will host up to 200 actors, crew members and technicians.

    “Hollywood’s coming to Crown Point,” said Philip Struebig, co-owner of the Hall of Justice. “It’s going to be a heck of a thing for Crown Point. It will put us back on the map.” Read More
