In a recent post, I let you all know about possible filming locations and a couple of new casting calls for Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp and Christian Bale's new real-life crime drama 'Public Enemies', which will soon be filming in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.
I'm now able to confirm another filming location for the movie. It's been reported that the movie will be filming at the First National Bank building in Columbus, Wisconsin. Local newspapers are saying that the historic building will be called Green Castle Bank in the movie.
Although I'm not sure about Channing, Johnny Depp and Christian Bale are both expected to be in Columbus for the movie which is set to start filming on March 17th. The city is currently preparing the entire downtown business district for filming and Scott Robbe, executive director of Film Wisconsin, says that "Columbus is going to play a prominent part in 'Public Enemies'".
Although they may be done with finding locations for the film, casting for 'Public Enemies' is still not complete, because they continue to search for extras. Here is information for a Milwaukee, Wisconsin casting call that will happen this Friday:
