Johnny Depp's "The Rum Diary" Finally Gets a Release Date

Posted: March 29th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Johnny DeppSubmit Comment
Johnny Depp's "The Rum Diary," based on Hunter S Thompson's novel and co-starring Aaron Eckhart, Amber Heard, Richard Jenkins and Giovanni Ribisi, wrapped filming over two years ago. But has since been shelved.

Now comes word that FilmDistrict will release the film in theaters on October 28th. "The Rum Diary" is about a washed-up, hard-drinking journalist named Paul Kemp (Depp) in 1950s Puerto Rico. Eckhart plays Sanderson, a wealthy landowner who believes everything has a price and introduces Kemp to a different standard of living.

"Hunter S. Thompson became close with Johnny Depp during the filming of 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' and showed Depp the unpublished manuscript for 'The Rum Diary,'" said GK Films. "I am extremely proud to bring this novel to film and to honor Hunter's legacy."

This film has apparently aged well. Excellent 2007 vintage. Here, have a sniff.

about damn time! I've literally read this book 6 or 7 times. Its like 210 pages long and is a super easy read...Since I'm so familiar with the story, I can easily now pick it up and read it when drunk.
I heard that there not going to have Yeamon in the movie, which is bogus because he's like the best character in the book.
Whatever, realllly looking forward to this...been waiting nearly 10 years

sidenote: I have a biography on Johnny depp from 2003, and in the back, it has his 'then' filmography which has this movie listed for 2004 lol
