"Public Enemies" comes to Oshkosh today

Correction: Filming is scheduled to begin Friday in Oshkosh.

Johnny Depp and the "Public Enemies" production crew have moved to Oshkosh, filming is scheduled to begin Friday. It's been reported that Oshkosh will stand in for Sioux Falls so they can replicate the great Sioux Falls robbery, where Dillinger's "advance man" Homer Van Meter arrived in the real Sioux Falls a day early to scope out the layout of the city and plan the "git," while there he told the citizens that he was there scouting locations for film that had a bank robbery scene in it. So the citizens, the next day, thought they were watching a film being made.

"Public Enemies" is based Bryan Burrough's book of the same name. The Universal Pictures film is being directed by Michael Mann and also stars Stephen Dorff as Homer Van Meter, Christian Bale as FBI agent Melvin Purvis and Marion Cotillard as Dillinger's girlfriend Billie Frechette.
