Johnny Depp channels Hunter S. Thompson in 'The Rum Diary'
This most recent iteration follows Johnny Depp as journalist Paul Kemp who moves from New York to Puerto Rico for a more relaxed lifestyle. In typical Thompson fashion, his travels involves a lot of drinking, drugs and misadventures. The films also features Amber Heard as the love interest and Aaron Eckhart as Heard's fiancee.
While the film is drawing so-so reviews, only getting a 47 percent favorable rating on Rottentomatoes.com, fans of the late Dr. Thompson can look forward to future big-screen adaptations given the vast collection of work.
But this got us thinking, which book deserves to be a movie next?
