"Public Enemies" Seeks Vintage Cars
Howard Bachrach, the picture car captain for Universal Pictures, will be in Milwaukee to scout potential cars, trucks and buses to be used as background vehicles, according to GM Today.
"They (car collectors) are a bunch of great people and because they’re passionate about what they’re doing, they’re willing to help us out," he said, adding that he has contacted local car clubs in the area inviting them to bring their vehicles made from 1930 to 1935 to the stadium for consideration.
Public Enemies, which is directed by Michael Mann, stars Johnny Depp playing the legendary American bank robber John Dillinger. Dillinger was one of the most well-known crime figures from the early 1930s, responsible for a string of daring heists before eventually being shot dead by police in a Chicago ambush in 1934 aged 31, reported Reel Suave.
Other notorious criminals in the story include Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. Christian Bale, meanwhile, plays Melvin Purvis, the one tapped by FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover to lead a manhunt.
Public Enemies’ production is set to begin later this winter in Chicago and other Midwestern locales.
