New Photo from 'The Rum Diary' with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

The Rum Diary

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:

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.

shame they didn't get off their rum(p)s to make this film while Hunter was still alive. Would have been a lot more interesting with him helping promote, plus Depp would have been more accurate to the part, age wise. Hope they stick to the heart of the book, luckily they have Depp there to keep true to they ways and world of Hunter S. Thompson. I've attached a great letter Thompson wrote to Hollywood insulting their incompetence, in case anyone hasn't read it.
