First Look: Official Photos of Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary
Well, these may not be official official photos, but these are actual stills from the movie, not just some shots of Depp taken by paparazzi while on set down in Puerto Rico. These two photos from Bruce Robinson's The Rum Diary were found on FilmTotaal.nl and are pretty cool to see. We've been hearing about this since the production started coming together a few years ago and we had heard a rumor that it might show in Cannes, but it never did, not even in the marketplace. So although it's great to see Depp in a role that doesn't involve heavy make-up, we have no clue when this is coming to theaters. Anyway, check out these two photos below!
Based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel, The Rum Diary, directed by Bruce Robinson (Jennifer 8), follows Depp as Paul Kemp, a divorced alcoholic and struggling novelist who decides to "kick around" in San Juan until his ship comes in, working as a journalist for a newspaper that's on its last legs, drinking "gallons of rum" and experimenting with LSD. With his new friend Bob Sala by his side, Kemp becomes entangled in a corrupt hotel development scheme with a PR consultant named Sanderson. Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Rispoli also star in this. Stay tuned for the latest updates on The Rum Diary.
