A recipe for success
Recently announced: Johnny Depp will play John Dillinger in Michael Mann's Public Enemies. The legendary bank robber died at age 31 and is most famous for removing his fingerprints with acid. Apparently this movie has been in the works for some time; DiCaprio was linked to the role back in 2004. This movie will be an adaptation of Bryan Burroughs' Barbarians at the Gate and will focus on J. Edgar Hoover's transformation of the FBI. Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd are also expected to be cast. Sniff, sniff. Yup, smells like awesome.
