The January 2009 issue of Empire Magazine will definitely be worth buying: besides the Wolverine cover, there is a first look at Christian Bale and Johnny Depp in the movie Public Enemies.

The movie Public Enemies is directed by Michael Mann and should be released on July 1, 2009. Let’s have a closer look to the cast of Public Enemies:
– Johnny Depp as John Dillinger: An American bank robber whose exploits dominated the press during what is sometimes referred to as the public enemy era, between 1931 and 1935.
– Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis: An FBI agent chosen by J. Edgar Hoover to lead a manhunt to catch Dillinger.
– Marion Cotillard as Billie Frechette: Dillinger’s torch singer girlfriend.
– Channing Tatum as Pretty Boy Floyd: An American bank robber and alleged killer.
Public Enemies has an impressive cast. I hope Director Michael Mann has been able to manage such a cast to give us a great period gangster movie.
