Film District have released this new image of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in Bruce Robinson’s (Withnail and I) upcoming adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s ‘The Rum Diary.’ The story centers on itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Depp) who moves to Puerto Rico and eventually discovers his voice as a writer and his integrity. ‘The Rum Diary’ also stars Aaron Eckhart, Michael Rispoli, Richard Jenkins and Giovanni Ribisi. The film is set for release October 28th.

“The Rum Diary” tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Depp). Tired of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Lotterman (Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late ‘50s version of Hemingway’s “The Lost Generation,” Paul soon becomes entangled with a very attractive American woman, Chenault (Heard) and her fiancée Sanderson (Eckhart), a businessman involved in shady property development deals. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.
