Christian Bale hunts Johnny Depp

Not content with battling the scum of Gotham City in The Dark Knight and tackling the cyborg menace as John Connor (probably) in Terminator: Salvation, Christian Bale has decided to track down Johnny Depp.

At least, he’s in talks to co-star in Michael Mann’s new Depression-era crime thriller, Public Enemies, which will see him playing an FBI agent who led a crusade to take down as many top level criminals as possible, including Chicago gangster John Dillinger.

Mann starts shooting this winter in the windy city and The Hollywood Reporter has the whole story .
