The Rum Diary Gets Release Date


Great news for fans of Hunter S. Thompson! The long awaited movie based on his semi-autobiographical novel The Rum Diary has finally been given a release date: 28th October, 2011.

The movie, starring Johnny Depp as Paul Kemp and Amber Heard as Chenault, finished production in late 2009 and has since been lost in distribution troubles. It has been a source of constant discussion and frustration for Gonzo fans the world over.

The two year delay, however, has been nothing compared to the 40 yr gap between Thompson writing the book and it finally being published.
