New Batch of Behind-the-Scenes Public Enemies Photos
Although we were just forced to remove those Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen behind-the-scenes photos, we've got some new ones to replace them with. Thanks to Phil Edwards of Live for Films, we've got a few new photos from Michael Mann's Public Enemies. A much larger batch (meaning 400+ photos) of shots from the set in Columbus, Wisconsin were posted on Michelle Martin's site as well. There are a lot of random photos of old signs and other set pieces, but we've pulled some of the better ones that show Johnny Depp in action and a few of the more stylistic shots that represent the time period.
We've also heard that Michael Mann is going back out to Illinois to do reshoots with Johnny Depp, which some of these photos are from. Mann recently did a private test at a movie theater in Los Angeles checking to see what certain scenes looked like on the big screen and now he's going back to do some reshoots. We're not sure how much will be reshot, but this isn't too uncommon for big studio movies. Enjoy the photos!
Public Enemies is directed by Michael Mann, of Heat, Ali, Collateral, and Miami Vice previously. The screenplay is based on Bryan Burrough's book of the same name and was adapted by Ronan Bennett (A Further Gesture). Later, Michael Mann and Ann Biderman (Copycat, Primal Fear) wrote a revised screenplay before shooting. The film has an all star cast made up of Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, David Wenham, Leelee Sobieski, Marion Cotillard, and Billy Crudup as J. Edgar Hoover. Universal is bringing Public Enemies to theaters everywhere on July 1st this summer.
