I did a search and couldn't find a thread on this subject, so if one already exists, I apologize in advance and just post the link to the existing thread. I heard a rumor that "the powers that be" were planning on turning Hunter S. Thompson's book "The Rum Diary" into a movie, and that Johnny Depp would once again be playing the lead role (just like he did in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"). I was just wondering if anyone else had heard anything about this and if there was any truth to this or if it is just as I stated: a rumor. I figured if any group of people would know, it would be the good fellows on the SHH boards. Most of us seem to always be informed on stuff of this nature.
