I have a few more pictures to add to the collection of photos I was able to take of the filming of the new Johnny Depp movie Public Enemies. More on that below. You can find my previous post here.
First I want to go ahead and fill in a few more details of the story. Thanks to a very nice man, Henry Walli, who had his 1930 Ford Pickup in the scene, I was able to find out that Johnny Depp was in fact right in front of my house from 4am to 6am on Thursday morning, while I was unfortunately sleeping, thinking he wouldn’t show up. Anyways, he was able to fill in some of the details of the scene. It appears that the scene they filmed in front of my house is where Dilinger(Johnny Depp) picks up his girlfriend Billie(Marion Cotillard) who is dressed as a man. I actually have pictures below of the scene they filmed Friday night where she is in the back alley walking icognito through a passageway between the houses to the front of the houses on Newport Ave. This would match up with what Henry Walli said in the comments of my previous post about Johnny picking her up then speeding off East in his Black Buick Coupe. In fact he saw them strap Michael Mann to the fender of the Buick! I recommend reading all of Henry’s comments on my previous post, as he also talks about how we was picked to have his truck in the movie. It is all very interesting. If anyone can fill in more details, it is appreciated.
The next time a major movie is filmed on my street, which I am sure will be never, I will definitely never sleep. Now time for the pictures! To get the full set of pictures I have, go here.
This first picture is of a set crew person adding license plates to cars. The green 1930 Ford Pickup is the one owned by Henry Walli.
The next two photos are of Michael Mann telling his helpers what to do to get the shot better and of Billie(Marion Cotillard)’s stand in doing the pre-filming.
These next two pictures are of Billie(Marion Cotillard) getting her wardrobe on. In the second picture you can see her in the back, while her stand in is still doing a few more takes to get the shot ready.
This is Billie(Marion Cotillard) doing the actual scene. You will notice when she walks back to do the scene again she gets an umbrella, unlike her stand in. :) The final picture is after they were done shooting the scene. She is under the umbrella and you can clearly see her face.
Finally, a couple of pictures of the crew.
