deppdillineger Johnny Depp Is John DillingerA diligent photographer has snapped Depp as Dillinger driving a car on the set of Public Enemies. The crime thriller is being directed by cinematic god Michael Mann, the cast also includes recent Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis the man trying to bring Dillinger down.

Apart from Depp, there’s a of picture of hoods hanging on to the side of a car carrying Tommy guns, in true gangster style.

Now does that not get your pulse racing, even a tiny bit?

For more pictures keep reading.


I’ll admit that Depp just looks like Depp, but at least he doesn’t look like Jack Sparrow. Now that the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise has sailed its course, we can once again see Depp as a first rate actor, and not a Disney character.

Mann is pure cinematic gold. We’re talking Heat, Manhunter, Last of The Mohicans, Collateral and Miami Vice (the film and the series). However, if you want to know why I’m so excited about Public Enemies, check out his 1980’s show Crime Story. This 1960’s set Las Vegas based series is oustanding. Starring Dennis Farina as a cop trying to take down organized crime in Sin City. I know that I’m telling you to watch a lot of old television these days, but trust me!

As Public Enemies progresses I’ll keep you posted on it’s development.
