The Rum Diaries

I just finished reading the Vanity Fair article on Johnny Depp. I can not wait to see him in The Rum Diaries. They couldn't have cast a better person to play Paul Kemp - a freelance journalist (love struck and with an alcohol problem) in Puerto Rico during the 1950's. Depp's understanding of Hunter S. Thompson is sure to make this even better than Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. There is plenty of time to (re)read the book, as the movie is scheduled for 2o1o release.
