If your a Hunter S. Thompson fan, Johnny Depp fan or both…you’ll be happy to know that Mr. Depp is starring as self-destructive journalist Paul Kemp in the film adaptation of the Thompson novel The Rum Diary currently shooting in Puerto Rico.
Depp is joined by Aaron Eckhart, Amber Heard, Giovanni Ribisi, and Richard Jenkins with Bruce Robinson directing per his own script.
Paul Kemp is a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean. Paul is challenged on many levels as he tries to carve out a more secure niche for himself amidst a group of lost souls all bent on self-destruction.
Rum Diary will release sometime in 2010. Below are some recent shots from the production in Puerto Rico.
