I know there are other members on this forum who have participated in the filming of the movie, but I thought I'd share my experiences.
"Public Enemies" is a film about John Dillinger due to be released in 2009. John Dillinger will be portrayed by Johnny Depp.
It is being filmed in some of the original Dillinger locations.
They filmed the famous "Great Escape" scenes in the ORIGINAL jail that Dillinger ACTUALLY escaped from in 1934 using a fake gun carved out of soap/wood.
That jail is in Crown Point, IN. My girlfriend and I visited the set on Wednesday 3/26 and took some photos. I live about 30 minutes away from Crown Point.
This kind of thing rarely happens around here, the last time a movie was filmed near here, it was "Prancer" ....sigh
Crown Point is a city that hasn't evolved since the 30's, so a lot of it looks the same from Dillinger's day.
I originally planned to be an extra, but never got around to mailing the application in. Oh, well. I know there are a few members here who were though...
Anyway, a very cool experience overall and after waiting all day, my girlfriend got to see Johnny Depp. She is still beaming!

I must apologize for some grainy photos. We were not allowed to use flash...
