Two new clips of Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary
Hunter Thompson's THE RUM DIARY is a strange book. One of the first novels he ever wrote but one of the last published, in many ways it's a precursor to the gonzo journalism style he would become famous for in his FEAR AND LOATHING books. The plot's very similar to FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS on the surface- a writer working for a newspaper trying to score drugs and women while making money however he can- but it's nowhere near as bizarre and drug-influenced as his later work.
The film seems to be quite similar. FilmDistrict just released two new clips from the film that show Johnny Depp in familiar territory.
