Depp to star in ‘Rum Diary’

Bruce Robinson has been set to adapt and direct “The Rum Diary,” the first novel by the late Hunter S. Thompson. Johnny Depp, who played Thompson in “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” will again play the gonzo journalist. “The Rum Diary” is Thompson’s chronicle of journalism, drinking and carousing in Puerto Rico in the late 1950s. FilmEngine hopes to get the film into production sometime after Depp wraps back-to-back sequels of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
