Depp/ Nolte/ Hartnett
Johnny Depp, Nick Nolte, Benecio Del Toro and Josh Hartnett will star in the feature film adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson (FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS) novel THE RUM DIARY. The film, which will be based on a script by Michael Thomas (SCANDAL), follows all the behind-the-scenes drama, debauchery and love at a San Juan newspaper in the 1950s. No director is attached but a deal is expected to be struck at this year's Cannes Film Festival. DIARY would mark the second time Depp and Del Toro would adapt a Thompson work - they starred in the aforementioned FEAR AND LOATHING.
