The Rum Diary, New Movie Based on Book by Hunter S. Thompson

The Rum Diary

The Rum Diary is an upcoming film based on Hunter S. Thompson’s book of the same name (trailer). Directed by Bruce Robinson, the film follows the booze-addled exploits of a renegade journalist in Puerto Rico–the story was inspired by Thompson’s experiences in Puerto Rico in 1960.

In anticipation of the film’s release on October 28, Playboy Magazine has posted a series of articles and image galleries chronicling its own relationship with the notorious writer.
