Here’s your first look at Johnny Depp as John Dillinger in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies – also to star Christian Bale as FBI agent Melvin Purvis and Channing Tatem as Pretty Boy Floyd. I’m not sure about the casting choices here – I mean, if you’re hanging out with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale and you get the nickname "Pretty Boy" you have to be damn near a woman. Perhaps Jonathan Rhys Meyers or Zac Efron would’ve been a better choice?
I can only pray that Johnny Depp in Public Enemies will have half the limp-wristed misogyny of Jimmy Cagney in Public Enemy (video after the jump). Maybe he could mash a grapefruit in Christian Bale’s face and they could make out or something.
