Michael Mann’s Public Enemies has picked up another hot dude, with Christian Bale in negotiations to star alongside Johnny Depp. Also important to note, all Public Enemies-related news will include the above clip from Public Enemy.
According to a person familiar with the situation, Bale will play Melvin Purvis, the legendary FBI agent who led the manhunt for John Dillinger. Depp is starring as Dillinger in the pic, which is set up at Universal and is slated to begin production in March.
Mmm’yeah, see! Throw down the loot or the coppa gets, ya heah? God I hope someone gets a grapefruit to the face in this one. 30s gangster talk aside, I’m praying this will keep Bale from doing a fourth Terminator with McG. Letting McG make a fourth Terminator is like putting crocs on a hobo – two wrongs don’t make a right, man.
