Johnny Depp coming to town
Johnny Depp is starring in a movie about John Dilllinger. Dillinger spent much of his time in Wisconsin, so much of the film is to be shot in WI. A bank in my town, right across the street from my studio in Richland Center, has tentatively been selected as one of the locations for the movie. It’s a 1930’s vintage building and has been very well preserved. The street that we are located on is a designated historic main street and most of the buildings have reclaimed their original facade’s. All that remains are the i’s to be dotted and t’s crossed, it’s expected to be a done deal. People from the studio were in town measuring all the buildings and making plans on what to do with the street scenes last week.
They will be filming in town sometime in March and today they were holding the extra’s casting calls in Madison. My 13 year old son, scencing on opportunity to get out of school, wanted to put his name on the list. So we went. It was interesting although somewhat of a let down. All we did is fill out an information card and they took his picture and that was it. Now we’ll wait and see, maybe he’ll get called. It is exciting.
