Goldenthal to score Mann’s ‘Enemies’

Posted by · 3:38 pm · June 30th, 2008

Exciting news.  This is without a doubt my most anticipated film of next year.  The press release, in part, on Goldenthal jumping on board:

Oscar-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal (Frida) has been signed to score Universal Pictures’ action-thriller from acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann, Public Enemies. Currently shooting in Chicago, Public Enemies stars Johnny Depp and Christian Bale in the incredible story of criminal folk hero John Dillinger (Depp), whose wave of bank robberies and the subsequent FBI manhunt, commanded by J. Edgar Hoover and run by Special Agent Melvin Purvis (Bale), fascinated the nation in the 1930s.  The film also stars Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, Giovanni Ribisi, Billy Crudup, Stephen Dorff, Rory Cochrane, Stephen Lang, David Wenham, Stephen Graham, Channing Tatum, and Jason Clarke.  It arrives in theatres in July 2009.

    After July 18th, I’ll be tootin’ the Public Enemies horn for a year. Ha!

    On a sadder note, I’ve read the Mann/Logan noir script, and, well, lets just say that I can’t believe the project won’t get the green-light for some time…a masterpiece awaits. But what do I know?

    Any chance you could send that script my way, Gittes?
