Rum Diary: Screenplay (Film Tie-In)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JOHNNY DEPP. A screenplay based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson. It's 1960. In a highrise hotel not far from the beaches of San Juan, a man is recovering from an animal of a hangover. Paul Kemp is an alcoholic journalist who's barely seen better days, arriving at the only job he can get: writing horoscopes for failing rag The Daily Star. His fellow hacks are mostly crazy drunks on the verge of quitting, so Kemp fits in perfectly. But when he meets the impossibly gorgeous Chenault and her flashy boyfriend Sanderson, Kemp finds himself in way over his head - party to shady business deals, in hair-raising car chases with enraged Puerto Ricans, experimenting with a hitherto unknown hallucinogen - and finally discovers a mad, desperate devotion to the truth. Bruce Robinson brings Hunter S. Thompson's novel to the big screen with all the brilliance, wild humour and fierce energy associated with the acclaimed writer and director of Withnail&I and The Killing Fields.

   b. 1946
   Film-maker
   First an actor, then a screenwriter and then a director, Bruce Robinson first came to prominence with his Oscar-nominated screenplay for David Puttnam’s The Killing Fields (1984), but then achieved cult status with his directorial debut, Withnail and I (1987), a comedy about two drunken, world-weary but comical actors living out the last days of the 1960s with the sense of doom and disillusionment that Hamlet feels in Elsinore. This was followed by How to Get Ahead in Advertising (1989), again with Richard E.Grant, The Shadow-Makers (1989) and Jennifer 8 (1992). He published his first novel, The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman, in 1998.
