Depp Film Bosses Facing Road Collapse Bill

Movie bosses behind Johnny Depp's forthcoming release PUBLIC ENEMIES are facing an additional filming cost from the mayor of the Wisconsin county the crime thriller was shot in - after a local road collapsed as a result of the traffic diversions to accommodate shooting.
The John Dillinger biopic was filmed in Columbus in March (08) after producers were attracted to the area by the governor's new movie incentives.
But during filming, state highway traffic had to be diverted away from the city centre and onto less congested routes - but the road, in Dodge County, could not handle the extra load and collapsed.
County officials were subsequently left with a $116,000 (GBP77,850) repair bill - leading to a lawsuit against Columbus city officials.
Columbus Mayor Nancy Osterhaus is now looking to split the cost with executives at movie studio Universal.
Public Enemies is scheduled for release in summer 2009.
