    Rum Diary Reviews: Mild Diversion, Vividly Average, Wildly Indulgent, Idiosyncratic

    Johnny Depp is on the promo trail for the long-delayed literary adaptation The Rum Diary (October 28), his second run at his fave writer Hunter S. Thompson--although reportedly, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean and the upcoming The Lone Ranger can't talk about the movie on Disney-owned ABC affiliates.

The project is in development at Illumination Entertainment and Depp's Infinium Nihil, with Depp producing (and possibly starring)...
