We've already seen a couple first look photos of Johnny Depp, but since they debuted last summer, we've yet to see much more from the adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's novel The Rum Diary, his very first book as a matter of fact. With the film slated to hit theaters in limited release on October 28th, it's surprising that we've yet to see a trailer for the film, and that may not be a good sign, even with a name like Depp involved. While I'm still hoping for a trailer soon, in the meantime GK Films (via ComingSoon) released a new photo of Depp playing journalist Paul Kemp and Amber Heard as Chenault. See it below!
Here's the new photo of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in The Rum Diary:
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.
