A little birdie told me, "It's Johnny Depp."
This week we have Carrie Underwwod shooting a commercial for Nintendo. Tuesday- Thursday. They will be using Kinetic and the lot at the corner. Johnny Depp will be from May 12-16 Kinetic and both parking lots.
Carrie Underwood....sweet! I'm bringing her lunch.
No chance the Gates Foundation will want to help the public schools here, huh?I guess all we are good for is being an "authentic gritty 'hood" for a commercial.
Or...In the case of the Johnny Depp movie, a corner that's authentic to the gangster era? One where the buildings that were here when Dillinger was in Uptown still exist and have been well-restored?There are lots of places in Uptown I would call gritty, but the corner of Lawrence and Broadway doesn't make my short list.
Having read the script for Public Enemies some time ago, I believe Dillinger meets his lady-love at The Aragon.
The dates May 12-16 were mentioned as filming Public Enemies. Anyone know if this is still happening?
