Now HERE'S a Movie I'll Have to See
I really like gangster movies (not to be confused with gansta movies). A new movie called Public Enemies is currently filming, starring some of my favorite actors: Christian Bale, Johnny Depp, and Stephen Dorff. It also stars Channing Tatum, who is not my favorite (but my 17 year old sister loves hims, so I guess he is just not my generation). The movie will be about the FBI's hunt for John Dillinger (Depp), Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd (Tatum). The fact that these gangsters have names like that makes me think of Dick Tracy, but, alas, this is the real deal (sans yellow jacket and hat).
It should be noted that Christian Bale (who plays one of the Feds in this movie) is probably one of my, if not THE, all-time favorite actor. Loved him since Newsies. At that point in my life, I had not seen Empire of the Sun or I would have loved him since I was 10.
In other Bale news, he has confirmed that he is interested in making the new Batman franchise into a trilogy. I am all for it. I can't wait for The Dark Knight.
