Christian Bale Joins Johnny Depp in Public Enemies Movie

Bale and Depp Are Public Enemies

Does it really get much better than this duo? I think not.
Variety is reporting today that Christian Bale will play opposite Johnny Depp in the crime movie Public Enemies. Michael Mann (Last of the Mohicans, Heat) will direct.

Buzz, what does "public enemies" refer to?
Funny you should ask! Depp will be playing John Dillinger, a bank robber from the early 1900s who was "considered by some to be a dangerous criminal, while others idealized him as a latter-day Robin Hood." According to Wikipedia, "His exploits, along with those of other criminals of the 1930s Depression era, such as Bonnie and Clyde and Ma Barker, dominated the attentions of the American press and its readers during what is sometimes referred to as the public enemy era, between 1931 and 1935, a period which led to the further development of the modern and more sophisticated FBI."

So, how does Christian Bale factor in?
Mr. Bale will be playing Melvin Purvis, "the legendary FBI agent who led the manhunt for John Dillinger." So, now a question for you: How psyched are you for this manjoyable combination?

*dies* I can't wait for this. I think the only "awesome actor" pairing I'd like to see more is Ed Norton with Johnny Depp. It MUST happen some day.
