Somewhat substantiated news that Johnny Depp's next project is The Rum Diary means that the oft-delayed production might actually begin filming this year.

The film was originally supposed to be directed by Puerto Rican native Benicio Del Toro with Josh Hartnett attached, but Del Toro passed the directorial baton on to Bruce Robinson (Jennifer 8, How to get Ahead in Advertising) after the production stalled for 18 months.
