Depp's gang cast

01.28.2008

A group of actors have signed on to co-star with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in the upcoming Michael Mann crime drama PUBLIC ENEMIES. Oscar-nominee Marion Cotillard, Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Jason Clarke have all signed on to star in the project. Cotillard (LA VIE EN ROSE) will play Billie Frechette, lover of Depp's John Dillinger, while the rest will play notorious members of Dillinger's gang (Tatum as Pretty Boy Floyd, Ribisi as Alvin Karpis, Dorff as Homer Van Meter and Clarke as John "Red" Hamilton). Bale is starring as the FBI agent assigned to take down Dillinger. Many of the actors became available for this film because of strike-related delays. In addition to Depp who came aboard when SHANTARAM hit the bricks, Cotillard was expected to star in NINE for The Weinstein Company and Tatum was to star with Bruce Willis in PINKVILLE for United Artists. Both those projects hit delays and freed up the actors to star in this film (and oddly enough both Weinstein and United Artists have reached interim agreements with the WGA that would've allowed both NINE and PINKVILLE to move ahead). Filming on ENEMIES is scheduled to begin on March 10th in Chicago.

What the frick hasn't been done a few hundred times? You can still get a good movie out of a genre thats quite old and filled with movies. Personally, this is beginning to look like one of my most anticipated of next year. Bale, Depp, Ribisi, Mann... heck yeah!

Depp and Bale... i get it

but what's up with this motley crew:

Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff?


these guys became available because of the strike? something tells me these guys where plenty available long before that.

This is a far cry from the cast of HEAT. ALI. Or even Miami Vice (!).

Did someone give Mann the keys to the ham factory?

Stephen Dorff has this habit of being in really terrible movies, in my opinion. I liked him in Blade and City of Industry, but there's not much else I've seen of his that I liked. Anyway, that doesn't matter, because this movie can do no wrong in my eyes.
