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.
