Amber Heard Joins Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary

Amber Heard

Hollywood hottie Amber Heard is in negotiations to play the coveted female lead opposite Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary, the adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson novel being directed by Bruce Robinson. It also looks like that news that we ran a few weeks ago about Depp taking on The Rum Diary as his next feature film was pretty accurate. Production begins on March 30th in Puerto Rico with Depp's Infinitum Nihil and Graham King's GK Films producing. Depp will play Paul Kemp, a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean.

Amber Heard will play the "unattainable" romantic interest Chenault, whom is the girlfriend of "a slick PR consultant named Sanderson" that becomes entangled in a corrupt hotel development scheme with Kemp. The role of Sanderon hasn't been cast yet, or at least, they haven't publicly revealed a name. Heard's role apparently has quite a bit of nudity, but if you haven't heard, she's pretty much nude all throughout The Informers, so this wasn't a big issue for her. I didn't see The Informers, so I can't speak for her acting abilities, but obviously with the roles she's getting, it's starting to seem like she's the next big thing.

She's like 20 years younger than Johny. A bit weird imo.

Johnny will be playing Paul Kemp who is in his early 30's. So, if he can pull off being 'young' it shouldn't seem weird.

This is awful casting. The Rum Diary is one of my favorite books and Chenault was this buxom blond, definitely not Amber Heard. She is smokin', though.

#8, this is the first photo I've seen her without blond hair, check out imdb. So don't give up faith from a banner photo.
