The Rum Diary Stills

the Rum Diary

This movie has been in the works for a very long time. At one point Benicio del Toro was directing and starring alongside Depp. The Rum Diary is Hunter S Thompson’s first novel, written when he was 22 but not published until much later. Unlike most of his work, the book more or less follows a traditional narrative structure. Because of this it must be one of the easier HST books to translate to film. /Film has the first production photos from the shoot. Depp is perfectly suited for this role, i’m sure he’ll play a toned down version of his Vegas HST — which is pitch perfect when compared to the actual Thompson here.
