Cast and crew updates for THE RUM DIARY

Giovanni Ribisi will be joining Johnny Depp in Bruce Robinson’s film, The Rum Diary, currently shooting in Puerto Rico. Ribisi previously worked with JD in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies, due in theaters on July 1st; according to Variety, Ribisi will play “a carousing journalist” (is there any other kind?). Also joining the cast is Amaury Nolasco, familiar to Zone readers from his role in the TV series Prison Break. Nolasco, a native of Puerto Rico, told the press that he is “doubly happy” to be cast since he will be coming home. Thanks to FANtasticJD and Emma for the casting news; you can read more on the Zone’s News & Views forum.

Director of Photography for The Rum Diary is the always-brilliant Dariusz Wolski, who shot the entire Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, as well as Tim Burton’s most recent films, Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland. Two-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood is designing the costumes; she has previously worked on five Johnny Depp films (Public Enemies, Sweeney Todd, Sleepy Hollow, Ed Wood, and Edward Scissorhands). –Part-Time Poet
