    The Hollywood Reporter says that Johnny Depp and Michael Mann will sit down this week to discuss teaming up for a film about the Depression-era crime wave.

    Mann has long been interested in mounting a screen adaptation of Brian Burrough's nonfiction book "Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34" for Universal.

    Mann -- who has considered taking the helm of Columbia's spy thriller Edwin A. Salt but has not committed to that project because he believes it needs a rewrite -- has an open slot. And Depp was to have starred in Warner/Initial Entertainment's Shantaram followed by Warner Independent's The Rum Diaries, but both of those projects were postponed last month.

    The trade says Depp is said to be eyeing the role of bank robber John Dillinger. Along with Mann, Kevin Misher is on board as producer; Robert De Niro and his partner Jane Rosenthal, who originally optioned the book, have been involved as executive producers; and the studio is looking at a March start in Chicago if all the elements come together.

    This sounds pretty interesting, especially with the Depression as a backdrop. I would definately check this out, if it is to be.

    Michael Mann is always amazing (though he slipped a bit up on Miami Vice), and Johnny Depp is amazing in any film he's in. I'm stoked.

    Fascinating era, great potential.
    Not really a Depp fan but I think I can look pass it.

    Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in the same movie!?!? :wow:

    It's about bloody time. :grin:

    This sounds like the kind of movie that will get Oscar nominations. The Academy seems to love this crime stuff. IMO, Nobody deserves that more than Bale, Depp and Mann.

    He's done plenty of great movies. Every director has an oops.

    I take it you haven't seen 'Heat'? Or 'The Insider'? Or 'Collateral'? :yay:

    Miami Vice is the only bad movie Mann has ever made, imo.

    The only movies of his that I haven´t enjoyed that much were Ali and Miami Vice, but The Last of the Mohicans, Heat, The Insider and Collateral were all great. This one sounds very interesting so I´m really looking forward to it, even more now since Bale is apparently joining.

    Holy ****, Bale and Depp in the same movie? They're probably the 2 best actors of this generation, and the story sounds interesting aswell...

    Too bad Mann is directing.

    let me guess: Miami Vice?

    He's done a ton of good movies. Good MAINSTREAM movies with that indie touch.

    I think he's a bland director. Heat was good because of the actors, directing...not so much. Collateral was awful and Miami Vice had the same ****ty camcorder look. I think Mann gets way too much credit.
