These last few months have seen a crop of photos showing Johnny Depp as proto-gangster John Dillinger in Michael Mann‘s Public Enemies (July 1st, 2009). Here’s another via Collider showing the actor/character in more casual time-appropriate attire, complete with ruby red shades. Nice pants. The site has other photos of Depp with a Corona and co-star Stephen Dorf, who plays one of Dillinger’s fellow bank robbers, Homer Van Meter.
If you’re wondering, no bloggable photos have surfaced from the set of Christian Bale playing Melvin Purvis, the ambitious FBI head who lead the crackdown resulting in Dillinger’s 1934 death outside a Chicago theater. The film is based on the real events as depicted in Bryan Burroughs‘s non-fiction account of the same name.
Discuss: In your opinion, what is Michael Mann’s best film? With this cast, do you think he’ll top it? Any favorite bank robber flicks?
