Johnny Depp going to or from the set of The Rum Diary

Posted by LiveFor on March 28, 2009

“Private source. Depp with, I believe, Buck Holland..his longtime security man.”

Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s novel of the same name, The Rum Diary follows Depp as Paul Kemp, a divorced alcoholic and struggling novelist who decides to kick around in San Juan until his ship comes in, working as a journalist for a newspaper that’s on its last legs, drinking gallons of rum and experimenting with LSD. With his new friend Bob Sala by his side, Kemp becomes entangled in a corrupt hotel development scheme with a slick PR consultant named Sanderson. Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins, Michael Rispoli, and Giovani Ribisi also star in this.

The photo below is similar to the previous one I posted, but you get to see a camera in this one and gives a cool little peak into the film making world. Thanks to Pam for sending me these.

    Please read the book before you watch the film; you need the HST vibe flowing through your veins!

    absolutely. but you have to realize that a novel and a film are different types of art…by nature, they can never be the same. it’s like apples and tangerines. they’re both fruit, but oh so different. i think depp will take the best of the rum diary and capture the spirit of hunter’s work. i’m a big fan of HST and i’m looking forward to this film.

    The security/PA you are seeing with Johnny is actually Jerry Judge. Jerry’s been with Johnny for a number of years and has had bit parts in Sweeney Todd and The Libertine. He also has experience in stunt work.
    Thank you for posting this wonderful photograph.
