Mumbai, Oct 28 (IBNS) PVR Pictures will release Johnny Depp's next 'The Rum Diary' on 4th November in India.

´The Rum Diary´ gives Depp chance to play yet another crack at playing Thompson.

Paul Kemp played by Jonny Depp is a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean.

Paul is challenged on many levels as he tries to carve out a more secure niche for himself, amidst a group of lost souls all bent on self-destruction.

Depp earlier has also played a character based on Hunter S. Thompson, after starring in Terry Gilliam´s 1998 adaptation of ´Fear And Loathing´ In Las Vegas.

The stench of cheap booze, stale cigarettes, newsprint and pre-air- conditioning sweat wafts off the screen in 'The Rum Diary'. It's Johnny Depp´s second tribute to his friend, the late journalist and fellow Kentucky native Hunter S. Thompson.
