Gene Dalhoff, executive director of the Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce, said Universal Pictures contacted the group earlier this month, and a representative said Baraboo was among 20 communities in Wisconsin being scouted as potential filming locations for director Michael Mann's "Public Enemies."
Merlin Zitzner, CEO of Baraboo National Bank, said he got a call from a representative of Mann, saying the bank is being considered for filming a robbery.
