Johnny Depp’s next Caribbean cinematic outing The Rum Diaries has released two official images online.
Despite the Caribbean sun Depp looks pretty darn cool straddling a motorbike and wearing sunglasses in the newly released pictures. The Rum Diaries is based on the Hunter S. Thompson’s semi-autobiographical novel of the same name. Depp plays a journalist trying to strike a balance between work and rum in 1950s Puerto Rico.
But expect to see a younger, better coiffed Thompson than the Thompson of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. “No ‘Extreme Hunter’ like I did in the Vegas movie.” Depp told Vanity Fair, “The Hunter of that film was somewhat hyped.”
Directed by Bruce Robinson and co-staring Aaron Echhart and Amber Heard The Rum Diary is released on 24 September.
Are you looking forward to seeing Johnny Depp cavorting in the Caribbean (again)?
