The Batman Star Plays Against Captain Sparrow in 'Public Enemies'?


Christian Bale


It was reported that Christian Bale is in negotiation to play opposite Johnny Depp in Michael Mann's new crime drama film.

The new face of Batman in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", Christian Bale, is said to be in talk to star in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies". According to Variety, the actor in "3:10 to Yuma" will play as Melvin Purvis, the legendary FBI agent who led the manhunt for John Dillinger.

If everything goes according to plans, Bale will star opposite the "Sweeney Todd" star, Johnny Depp, who depicted the bad guy Dillinger. Though his involvement hasn't been confirmed yet, it is more likely that the 33-year-old English actor will get the part as the job is not expected to clash with Bale's commitment in "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins".

The production of the Depression-era crime drama is scheduled to start later this winter in Chicago and other Midwest locales. Further, the adaptation film is being produced by Mann and Kevin Misher, while Robert De Niro and his partner Jane Rosenthal will be the executive producers.
