Johnny Depp's THE RUM DIARY to begin filming the last week of March

Good news–filming of The Rum Diary, starring Johnny Depp, will begin two months from now in Puerto Rico! The UK’s Prodweek reports that the Bruce Robinson film will start shooting on March 31, 2009, while Screen Daily reports a start date of March 29th: “Johnny Depp will star in this long-gestating adaptation of the adventure drama by Hunter S. Thompson which finally begins principal photography in Puerto Rico on March 29. Withnail And I’s Robinson adapted the screenplay and will direct the late maverick journalist’s novel about a reporter in the Caribbean who tries to improve his life while all around him seem hell-bent on self-destruction.” Either date sounds great to us!

The Zone thanks Emma for the news; you can read more about The Rum Diary on the Zone’s News & Views forum. We send our congratulations and best wishes to all the members of The Rum Diary’s company. –Part-Time Poet
