Movie Fanatic recently debuted The Rum Diaries trailer and the response was immense. Audiences are eager to witness Depp back in a role crafted from the mind of Hunter S. Thompson. The actor previously headlined Terry Gilliam’s page to screen adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. And some have said that Depp was channeling a bit of Thompson in his performance in Rango.
In the film that debuts October 28, Depp is a writer, Paul Kemp, who ventures to Puerto Rico for a position at a newspaper. He is joined by a stellar cast including Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins, Giovani Ribisi, Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard.
Beyond Fear and Loathing and the Rango inspired characterization, Depp’s passion for Thompson knows no end. He narrated Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, a documentary on the esteemed author's life.
