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.

Warner Home Video are releasing Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street on the 19th May 2008 for an RRP of £23.99. Based on the 19th century legend of Sweeney Todd and the hit Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (Johnny Depp) returns to London after being sent to prison, unjustly, by Judge Turpin.

Joining Depp is Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney’s amorous accomplice, who sells “the worst pies in London.” With the help of Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney tries to rid of all the people who have ever done him wrong and hopes to be reunited with his daughter, Joanna, who is now Judge Turpin’s ward.

Commentary By Tim Burton

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

By Susan Rushton

‘Idiot,” Johnny Depp likes to joke, is the German translation of his surname. The swooned-over film actor, who picked up his first Golden Globe for his all-singing portrayal of Sweeney Todd, has, over a 24-year career, gained a reputation for playing the outsiders, rejects and oddballs – the idiots. Big-bucks, twinkly-eyed romantic leads have never held any allure.

Instead, Depp has transmogrified into pallid Edward Scissorhands, kohl-eyed pirate Captain Jack Sparrow and Cry-Baby Walker, the delinquent of John Waters’ 1990 Cry-Baby. He has cross-dressed in Before Night Falls and Ed Wood, shaving his legs for the latter.

“I always thought it’d be interesting to see them all in the same room together,” Depp says of his characters. Read More

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.
