The Pirates of the Caribbean actor makes his return to the world of Hunter S. Thompson in an adaption of the Gonzo journalist’s earlier works of drunken debauchery, Eric Whitman reports in the dailyblam.com.
Begun in 1959 by a then-twenty-two-year-old Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary is a brilliantly tangled love story of jealousy, treachery and violent alcoholic lust in the Caribbean boomtown that was San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the late 1950s. Exuberant and mad, youthful and energetic, The Rum Diary is an outrageous, drunken romp in the spirit of Thompson’s bestselling Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Hell’s Angels.
The Rum Diary stars Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi and Richard Jenkins and is directed by Bruce Robinson. It hits theaters October 28, 2011.
