The beginning of the end.....

The beginning of the final week of filming has started. Today Mann, JD and crew were filming in the Chicago area. This being the final days before "wrap" is a bitter~sweet for those of us who are following the filming of Public Enemies.

The bitter=no more watching on location filming, no more pics and stories of JD and his famous "meet & greets".

The sweet=all the wonderful people who have come together and become friends over the past 110+ days, the memories of all the wonderful moments everyone has had who have experienced the "Depp-Effect".

I want to thank Marcella and Becky for the update and pics!!!


Here's what Marcella had to say: (posted on PEC on 6-23-08 11:10pm)


Haha so Vicky did get my message! As planned my friend and I took the 5:55 train down, caught a cab and headed towards Wrigley field. Basecamp happened to be across the street from where the cab had let us out. After talking to Becky (who was already where they were filming) we made our way to the set. Becky got a chance to actually see him act out the scene several times... we had just missed it. They wrapped soon after and of course Becky was much more on top of things then we were. After contemplating her sudden disappearance, we ran off in the direction of base camp. As usual, Becky knew what she was doing ;) Thank God we had literally ran. We arrived just as Jerry was collecting things to be signed. I was able to get both the Rolling Stones (with him on the cover) signed as well as the article printed a few months back comparing both John Dillinger and Johnny Depp.
After about an hour or so off socializing, Johnny came out a little before ten (correct me if I am wrong on this). My goal was to get a picture with him, and I succeeded. Of course I was looking at the wrong camera in the picture, but hey take what we can get right? Johnny seemed much less tired then Friday/Saturday in my opinion, although I know he still had a long day. Someone said they started at 6 this morning. Fun night and I know Becky was especially excited about getting back to Milwaukee at a decent time.
















And the BEST pic !!!!!



Thanks again gals for sharing the info.... and special thanks to Becky for allowing me to post her pics!!!!!!! THANKS!!!!!

Bye, Minx, have a great day! Work hard.

shakenbsis said...

OMG Lotus, that's MY prayer!!!

Ran over to Rod's blog and now I'm really late! (talk of WI shooting FRI?!?!?) and flustered/excited, much rather do WI than Kankake or Chicago!

Great day to you two FINE ladies!!!

Movie Star Wife said...

Boo Hoo. Movie Star took over the computer last night, so I didn't come back before falling asleep.

Bring on the Strawberry Margaritas!!!

When I said children, I meant 30ish children at work. Then, home to my own.

*drooling over the thought of margaritas*

It is the end of my lunch break, so I shall return this eve.
Toodles

-Sir Jack said...

Lotus love, you should go visit your relatives...look's like we're going to be pulling in late. Not sure what time exactly that we would arrive in Wausau. If it's before 9pm I'll try to drop a post.

Ahhh, the mystery is still tightly tangled and tied.

who'sinmybasement? said...

who is the other portion of "we?"

Lotus,

I think I WAS supposed to be there...but Sir Jack never picked me up. I had even packed me bag o'rum!!! LOL

~Minxie~ said...

I have something VERY special and VERY secret!!!!! I am soooo excited!!!
Send me a message via email if you are interested.... You just might get MORE than you bargained for in return!!!!!! :D

Lotus said...

That's OK, Sir Jack. Maybe we can meet when you are in the Northwoods. I'd have more time on the weekend, as family will be gone.

So, who's was your trip buddy? Or is he fabricating stories AGAIN?

Boy, trying to hear if it is a "go" or "no go" for WI filming on Friday is a Bi-Polar experience! I'm up, I'm down. Moviestar wife is the bearer of bad tiddings. HOPE she's wrong!

Lotus said...

Minx, how can anyone NOT be interested with that come-on!?! You have mail!

~Minxie~ said...

Lotus... who.... sorry I was reading my surprise.... youve got mail!

Lotus said...

Minxie, is it a good read? And luv, pray tell, how did this golden nugget drop into your hot little hands? I'm excited now!!!!

"I'm so exited, and I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!" :D

Lotus said...

P.S. Minx, you have mail again!

And I'm not "exited," I'm more excited.

~Minxie~ said...

I have "sources"... LMAO!!!

Youve got a golden ticket baby!!!!

Hugs!!!!

Now, can I get some cheese curds sent to me? =0P

Lotus said...

Minxie!!!! I'm like a giddy schoolgirl! Email me your snail mail address and I'll send out cheese curds before I go up north on my vacation! NO SHIT, I WILL! I might even through in some blocks of fresh Colby cheese. It squeaks too!

Lotus said...

Not through, throw! I'm so excited I can't spell! Of course, I never could. :)

~Minxie~ said...

Who's.... you've got mail.... please confirm that it came thru ok....!

Lotus said...

Sir Jack, sorry. I did not see your post until now and I am headed for bed. How about this weekend, up north? Sunday? I could meet you at Little Bo on Sunday, if you will be around. Let me know!

You MUST email Minxie and tell her you want in on the fun! Fair warning! And it has nothing to do with you directly!

Lotus said...

Laura, where are you going to be up north next week? I'll be up around Manitowish Waters for a good part of next week. YEA, vacation!

Thanks for email love, you are a Minx!!! Lotus is right-quite a nugget!!

Lotus love, tsk, tsk, you missed your chance...you have a great vacation!

Minxie, you will have email soon...

Good luck to those who head down to Chi-town!! Cheers!

Lotus said...

"Lotus love, tsk, tsk, you missed your chance" NO, Sir Jack, say it ain't so, Sir Jack! I at least need a chance to plead my case.

Here goes: I had checked the posts just a few minutes before you must have posted. You weren't there, so I figured I was safe to have a drink and go to bed. Then I checked again, just as I was turning off my puter and there you were. I am totally blameless (& clueless) in this.

You know you want to know who Lotus is!!! It's killing you not to know. Email me, we'll do lunch at Little Bo. (hands folded in prayer)

~Minxie~ said...

Lotus love.... I am sorry that your chance was missed..... I was soooo hoping!!!!

Sir Jack... give her another chance.... tell her where you will be today!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!

shakenbsis said...

HI ROBBI! Glad you're around; even in & out. Minx, the next time you have contact with Team WI tell them to ask JD, if they see him, if they will film in WI tomorrow. I'll bet he'd know. It'd be funny if he answered in the affirmative!

One more day to vacation!!! Yahoo! Minxie, anything new from Team WI?

I have been considering purchasing the Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device. It's been several months and I couldn't really decide. Yes or No! But today I decided, NO.

I realized within the past 24 hours that I MUST have paper. I need something substantial to touch and hold onto. I need BOOKS! Thanks Minxie, this revelation is your doing! Saved me several hundred dollars in mistakes. :)

-Sir Jack said...

Cheers all! Just got back from Little Bohemia. Very interesting place. I'll put some photos up on my blog next week...I think I got some good shots.

The food there...wow!! I had the best Chicken Marsala...taste buds died and went to heaven!

shakenbsis said...

Home Safe...

Left LawGirl at the 90/94 split off and jsut sent Blaze, Osh and Movie Sar Wife North from here.

HOpefully they will chime in as they get home...

Great time! As Marcella has givien a bit of an update, I'll save mine for my blog a bit later.

Thanks to all those who texted us updates along the way = )

HUGE crowd tonight!

I estimate 1500 bodies (maybe more)

-Sir Jack said...

A big wahoo!! to all who went to see JD yesterday!!

I was over at IMDb this am and herenother left a message about 20 min ago...vague maybe...read it for yourselves...I'm tired and may be misunderstanding what he is saying. But since you know who he is now...maybe he told you in person? I'm not sure but still I think something PE may hit the fan in WI.

Last night on our way to Little Bo I thought I was imagining this..but I saw a RV just like MMs (similar to a photo of Oshy's). I thought to myself...just a coincidence. Impossible for him to be in IL and WI at the same time. No white trucks, no little signs here and there...I'm pretty sure PE is not up here.

I might be out of range for the next few days and will miss out on all the reports from last night and this weekend's. I hope good things will continue to happen to PE fans in WI.

If PE/JD does go WI WI...could someone get an autograph for 'ol Sir Jack? Thanks loves!!

ps-Lotus-Home Improvement-love that idea!!

Good Morning All!!!!!!

Good morning, and your welcome.

I will not be around today. Going to try to see JD on the last day of filming. I want to try and have him sign this autograph thing for the girl that lives in Chile.

I have lots of yummy JD pics to share with you all, but I am afraid it will have to wait till tmomrrow. Sorry.

Vicky
