Aaron Eckhart is in negotiations to join the cast of Rum Diary, an adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s novel, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Johnny Depp and Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins have already signed up to do the film.

Depp, who first played Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, stars in this film as an alcoholic journalist in 1950s Puerto Rico. Sound like someone we know? It should. The film is a somewhat fictional account of Thompson's experiences in Puerto Rico, when he was a freelancer there in 1960 and supplemented his income as a male model for Bacardi Rum, according to msnbc.com.

Shooting starts March 30 and the film is expected to come out next year. That should give me enough time to scrounge around and find my own copy of Thompson's book.
