Depp and Del Toro plan more fear and loathing

Depp and Del Toro plan more fear and loathing

Staff and agencies
Thursday September 18, 2003 Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro are to collaborate on an adaptation of the Hunter S Thompson novel, The Rum Diary. The pair last teamed up as the stars of Terry Gilliam's wired 1998 adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. But their return trip to Thompson's work will find Del Toro juggling his supporting role with a behind-the-scenes seat as the film's director.
Regarded as "the lost novel" from the infamous Gonzo journalist, The Rum Diary was written in 1959 when the author was just 22. Its semi-autobiographical plot charts the fortunes of a wannabe New York writer who takes a dead-end job on the San Juan Daily News in Puerto Rico and charts his (largely unsuccessful) battle with the bottle and his run-ins with the local people. Reprising his turn in Fear and Loathing, Depp will take the lead role as the tale's Thomspon-esque hero, Paul Kemp. The film will also star Josh Hartnett and Nick Nolte.
Gilliam's madcap take on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was a critical success but a box office failure. Since then, however, its stars have gone from strength to strength. Del Toro won a best supporting actor Oscar for his turn in Steven Soderbergh's Traffic and will next be seen in 21 Grams, the second feature from Amores Perros director, Alejandro Gonzales Inaritu. Depp, meanwhile, recently topped the US and UK box office with Pirates of the Caribbean.,00.html

Don't let the idiots get to you, if you want to write, write. I for one, enjoy reading the stories you write. It's a nice break from the daily, sub-moronic banter that goes on here.

i just jizzed in my pants
you're all a bunch of fucks

Once I met this wino and he was eating some grapes and I said "dude, you have to wait".

I don't have a girlfriend. I just know this lady who'd be really mad if she heard me say that.

I once saw a forklift lift a crate of forks. And it was way too literal for me.

I got an ant farm. Them fellas don't grow shit.

I like the FedEx guy, 'cause he is a drug dealer and he don't even know it! And he is always on time.

I read excerpts from "The Rum Diaries" in "Songs For the Doomed." I know who Nolte's character will, and it's a damn good fit. "Diaries" is funny as hell, I can't wait to see it realized.

"The Rum Diaries" is a young HST's imitation of Hemingway.

What you are about to see could never take place, several eminent scientists have assured us of this fact, as they are quick to point out...the world is flat.

there are no drugs in the book, except for alcohol, lots and lots of alcohold. It was a really funny book, and its kind of written like it was made to be a movie.

and about harnett, i dont mind him he is in a couple of good movies. Id like him more if it wasnt for the god awful "Pearl Harbor"

if you want to feel funky feel free but pulleeaaze dont spread that funk on me
