Enjoyed reading that. So looking forward to this movie. I was hoping there was a chance this could be filmed and ready for release by the end of the year but I guess that's too much to ask. Oh well, I guess I'll live with it being my most anticipated film of '09.

Any time I get new tidbits on a Mann project it's like freakin' Christmas.

I simply cannot wait to see what Mann gets out of both Depp and Bale.

A little disappointed they're not sticking hard to the facts - Pretty Boy Floyd was killed three months after Dillinger - but I am incredibly excited about this project. Even if I weren't interested in the Public Enemy era I'd be in love with this film.

Fantastic. Just fantastic.

Great write up - I've been looking forward to this, and it didn't disappoint.

Looks promising. I can't wait for this to maybe open the door for Mann for his Studio backlot movie.

Concur with above sentiments. It's a sad world when DiCaprio and Mann can't get $120M.

I'm excited about this film, and excited about what it means for Mann's subsequent films.

Avowed Mann-iac,
Chuck

Of course now I have the music from The Untouchables in my head.

I can't imagine this movie not being great.

I can't deny that I am a little disappointed to hear that Bale's Purvis doesn't have much to do, but I'm excited to see what Mann and Depp do with this.

Beaks, you didn't do a crop report for that Mann/Logan script, did you? Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss it....

I'd go even further than The Untouchables. If done right, this could do for Mann what The Departed did for Scorsese (i.e. critically acclaimed big money-maker that everyone loves and wins a handful of awards...including possible 'Picture' and 'Director' Oscars!)

It could also nab Depp his 'Best Actor' Oscar and Bale his (insanely long overdue) Oscar nod.

So, Channing Tatum's role is pretty much a glorified cameo?

Same here. God, that score kicked ass.

Very much so.

I will punch out the people who don't see this.

Well, I guess that explains why he signed up to do this and G.I. Joe despite the overlapping shooting schedules.

Great read. This is already my most anticipated film of next year. Like Beaks said, I think it is simply impossible that this movie wouldn't be great.

Sweet news all around. And let's toast Spinotti's reunion with Mann. What's worse than shooting television movies for Brett Ratner?

Waiting to hear who is cast as Hoover - Kilmer, maybe? - and Purvis' ringers.

Sorry if I missed this in the write-up or elsewhere (got a bad virus right now and my head's not working at 100%), but is there any word on whether this will be shot on film or video? This thing cries out to be shot on film.
post #22 of 28
I think that's why Spinotti is back.

Sounds amazing.

Also, I love the Crop Reports.

There's nothing really new I can say. This is gonna be the balls. I just hope Mann gets Donnie Brasco level greatness out of Depp. How badass are the shooutouts in this gonna be?

Answer: tits.

I just hope that I'd have gotten Miami Vice out of my head by the time PE rolls around

Why? It's a great movie.

Much like Collateral, Vice was loved by critics but unlike Vice it didn't catch on at the box office, although Mann's always got solid foreign. I must say having watched it last week I still think its damn solid. Mann to me is only comparable to Lean for being solid every time, save for one film each. Also Beak's kind of hard to stop a Hurricane halting production and destroying things in the middle of filming hence why Vice broke his long record of about 15 million profit on all of his films in regards to domestic BO.


I cant find the Interview but Mann definitely said he was finished with digital for a while and with Spinotti confirmed back it gotta be celluloid and with this era its going to be great. Cant wait to see what he does score wise, and this his first period piece.

Didn't "The Few" get closer to production as well before he settled on this? Cause if the flying scenes in Vice are anything to go buy a Mann air war movie would be the bees knees.
