First pictures of Johnny Depp in Rum Diary with Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I think it’s great that Johnny Depp is such a fan and admirer of Hunter S. Thompson. He starred in the trippy FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and hung out with the famous author when he was still alive. Unfortunately, I don’t really get the appeal, but there seems to be a lot of people that really like Thompson’s work. Hollywood has had a fascination with him for a while and the latest incarnation of one of his works is the upcoming RUM DIARY. Johnny Depp stars as a journalist that gets sick and tired of the hustle and bustle of New York City, so he packs up and moves to Puerto Rico to work for a local paper. While there, he becomes smitten with the wife (Amber Heard) of a local businessman (Aaron Eckhart) who is involved in some shady business dealings.
The film also stars Michael Rispoli, Richard Jenkins, Giovanni Ribisi and Amaury Nolasco and is written and directed by Bruce Robinson.
