Public Enemies Behind-the-Scenes

Universal seems to be keeping Public Enemies very closer to their chest. We've seen a few trailers, but not that many TV spots or not much new footage. But that may all change soon, I hope. This behind-the-scenes featurette actually aired earlier in the week during the MTV Movie Awards, but I wanted to feature it anyway. Director Michael Mann talks about the character of John Dillinger and is joined by Johnny Depp and Christian Bale as well. The most fascinating part of this is when Bale talks about Dillinger and how he became idolized in America Now that is the story I definitely can't wait to see on the big screen.

Watch the behind-the-scenes featurette for Public Enemies:

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 will be bringing Public Enemies to theaters everywhere on July 1st this summer.

Forget Terminator Christian Bale, Johnny Depp is the better enemy. Looking forward to this, hope it turns out good. (But with Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and director Michael Mann on board, what can really go wrong here.)
