The Rum Diary – Johnny Depp

Here is a film that began production recently, in which Johnny Depp not only portrays the leading role but it is also the first film produced by Infinitum Nihil, the production company headed by Depp and his sister Christi Dembrowski.

The story, based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson, is set in the 1950’s about a journalist, Paul Kemp (played by Johnny Depp) who moves to Puerto Rico from New York to work for a local paper, The Daily News and finds himself dealing with alcoholism, love, jealousy, and treachery.

I am really happy to see Depp taking on a challenging role such as Paul Kemp, it’s always wonderful watching Depp’s eccentric performance and based on what I read about the novel, this is right up his alley as well. He is also joined by Aaron Eackhart and Richard Jenkins. Screenplay by Bruce Robinson, the movie is scheduled for release in 2010.

Stay Tuned for updates as they become available.
