The Rum Diary – Johnny Depp’s next Hunter S Thompson film could be at Cannes

Posted by LiveFor on April 8, 2010

I am really looking forward to seeing The Rum Diary. Been ages since we heard any movement on it but looks like we’ll be seeing it soon.

Nina Saxon Design, one of the entertainment industry’s leading design production studios, specializing in main and end titles, title sequences, and animated motion graphics logos for major motion pictures, television movies and TV programs, and entertainment production companies, has completed the main title design sequences for one upcoming, and two recent, high profile feature films. The announcement was made by the company’s president, Nina Saxon, widely acknowledged for close to 30 years as one of Hollywood’s most accomplished and successful title designers.

Nina Saxon Design has completed the main title sequence for the GK Films release “The Rum Diary,” starring Johnny Depp, Amber Heard and Aaron Eckhart, based on a novel by Hunter S. Thompson. That film, from producer Graham King, is currently seeking distribution at the Cannes Film Festival. “The Rum Diary,” directed by Bruce Robinson (who also wrote the screenplay), depicts the story of Paul Kemp (Depp), a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean.

Regarding her title design projects, Saxon says, “I see my work as providing an introduction to a film that sets both an artistic and a thematic tone. When I do my job well, the audience is involved with the film, before the credits have even finished.”

Nina Saxon Design also completed the entire opening sequence for the recent film “The Yellow Handkerchief,” for director Udayan Prasad and producer Arthur Cohn. That film, which stars William Hurt, Maria Bello, and Kristen Stewart, presents the story of a road trip through Louisiana, which transforms three strangers, who were originally brought together by their respective feelings of loneliness.

Amaury Nolasco joins The Rum Diary

Posted by LiveFor on March 26, 2009

Actor Amaury Nolasco, featured in the Fox Television series Prison Break, arrived in his native Puerto Rico on Wednesday to join the cast of The Rum Diary, a film starring Johnny Depp.

Nolasco said in a press release that he felt “doubly happy” about the chance to combine business with pleasure.

“The Rum Diary” is based on the book of the same name by late “gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson, recounting his experiences living in Puerto Rico in the 1950s.

Shooting on the movie is set to begin next Monday on the Caribbean island.

Depp also portrayed Thompson in the 1998 film “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” with Puerto Rico’s Benicio del Toro as his co-star.

Nolasco joins a cast that includes Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins, Giovanni Ribisi and Gavin Houston.

“None of them will leave Puerto Rico without a little piece of our flavor,” Nolasco said of his colleagues.

Directed by Bruce Robinson, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “The Killing Fields,” the new film is being produced by Depp, Christi Dembrowski and Graham King, whose credits include “The Departed,” “The Aviator” and “Gangs of New York.”

Cheers to Pam for letting me know.
