Two-Face, Captain Jack tussle over gal

Movie News

Oscar Nominee Richard Jenkins (“The Visitor”, “Burn After Reading”) and should-be-nominated Aaron Eckhart (“The Dark Knight”, “Towelhead”) look set to join Johnny Depp in the film adaptation of Hunter S.Thompson’s “The Rum Diary”.

Eckhart is in negotiations while Jenkins is signed on for the movie, which Bruce Robinson adapted and is directing. Amber Heard also is on board.

Eckhart is part of a love triangle that sees him vying with Depp for Heard’s affection. “Diary” is the tale of a washed-up, hard-drinking journalist named Paul Kemp (Depp) in 1950s Puerto Rico. Eckhart would play Sanderson, a wealthy landowner who believes everything has a price and introduces Kemp to a different standard of living.

Jenkins is playing Lotterman, the man who oversees the rundown newspaper where Kemp works.
