RUM DIARY filming resumes in Puerto Rico; new pictures of Johnny Depp

Filming of The Rum Diary, directed by Bruce Robinson and starring Johnny Depp as journalist Paul Kemp, resumed in Puerto Rico today after a four-day Easter break. The first scene filmed involved Paul Kemp riding in a taxi; it was shot in Norzagaray Street in Old San Juan, El Nuevo Dia reports. Our photo shows Johnny inside the vintage dark blue taxi; to see a larger photo, CLICK HERE.

Later in the day, filming shifted to a road overlooking the ocean, where scenes were shot involving Paul Kemp driving a light blue Fiat 500 and apparently having a minor accident and an unpleasant encounter with the local police. If you see paparazzi photos of Johnny Depp with blood on his face, don’t worry–it is only stage blood, not the real thing.
