Rum Diary

The trades are reporting that Aaron Eckhart is in negotiations and Richard Jenkins (currently Oscar nominated for his role in The Visitor) has signed on to The Rum Diary — based on the book by Hunter S. Thompson.

The story follows Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp), a freelance journalist and heavy drinker who moves to Puerto Rico to write for a newspaper. Eckhart would play a rich land owner named Sanderson, who attempts to show Kemp an alternative way of life. He’s involved with a woman named Chenault (played by Amber Heard), who also gets involved with Kemp, creating a good old fashioned love triangle. Richard Jenkins will play Lotterman, the head of the newspaper where Kemp works.

Hunter S. Thompson wrote the book based on his own story as a journalist who moved to San Juan to write for a newspaper. He wrote the book in 1959, but it wasn’t published until 1998.

This will be Johnny Depp’s second go-round in the world of Hunter S. Thompson — his first being Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
