Johnny Depp greets fans during filming of THE RUM DIARY

Filming of Bruce Robinson’s The Rum Diary continued at the building designated as the offices of the San Juan Star in Old San Juan today; local media reported seeing actors Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins and Marshall Bell entering and leaving the set. The fans who congregated, hoping for a chance to say hello to JD, were not disappointed, but they had a long day of waiting: Johnny reported to the set before 8:00 a.m., and it was 6:00 p.m. before he was at liberty to come out and greet the well-wishers. ELNUEVODIA.com reports that Johnny was friendly with the crowd, signing autographs and “handing out kisses.” To see a larger photograph of Johnny greeting his supporters, CLICK HERE.
