Gangsta Glam

Pink reader Sarah sends in a batch of really great pics of Johnny Depp on the set of his new movie Public Enemies which is currently filming in her small town of Columbus, Wisconsin. Here are a few pics of Johnny in full costume as John Dillinger shooting a scene for the movie complete with old skool machine gun and a bag of money:

Sarah writes: Because shooting started in my small hometown of Columbus (population: 4,500), I was able to go and watch them shoot. The pictures that are attached my brother, Jamie, actually took at the bank that my mom works at. Apparently, Johnny actually went into the bank and took some pics & signed some autographs right before my brother & mom got there. Boo. Unfortunately, we weren't able to see Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Channing Tatum (damn!) or Giovanni Ribisi; we're not even sure if they were there or not. But none the less, my brother got these pics and I thought I would share them with you.

I love these pics! Even tho I'm not a fan of period pieces, I'm loving what I've been seeing of this film so far. I guess I'm kinda bummed that the money bag doesn't have a $ on it but still, the pics are very cool. Much, much love goes out to Sarah and her bro Jamie for sharing these amazing pics. I imagine it is very exciting to have a big Hollywood film set come to town (OR it's a huge pain in the ass ... more probably, it's a mixture of both depending on who you ask) and I really appreciate hearing how filming like this takes place from the locals themselves. [thanks Sarah and Jamie]
