Johnny Depp is stepping into the wacky world of Hunter S. Thompson again in 'The Rum Diary,' an adaptation of the gonzo journalist's semi-fictional novel of the same name.

This time Depp plays a recently divorced alcoholic, who goes down to late 1950s Puerto Rico to work at a local newspaper. Drunken mayhem and drug-induced hijinks ensue. The film, which also stars Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart and Giovanni Ribisi, is scheduled for an October 28 release.
