The Film Project "The Rum Diary" Production and Distibution Completion sign now

The main purpose of this petition is to complete production of the film "The Rum Diary" starring Nick Nolte, John Depp and Benicio Del Toro. The production has been stalled for too long and needless to say, natives of the cinema are not pleased. We want this film to be completed because of the content of Thompsons novel is well beyond interesting for one thing aside from the other motive regarding the production company. Through this film you have a first rate cast with names that coincide with the phrase "box office draw". I'll leave my personal harangue regarding actor quality and Hollywood scripts today for another time but this is a win/win situation. These names bring you the dollars you try to calculate into art and they bring us cinematic joy because of their copious talent. The success of Depp and Del Toro has already been cemented via Terry Gilliam's vision of Thompson's award winning novel "Fear and Loathing". I'm willing to bet that many people agree with me in this area and would like to see this film be completed and distributed to theaters which is why I decided to make this petition.

I would also like to remind those of you who do sign the petition to please use your given name in the "name option" section because it strengthens the validity of our petition to those that will consider it's potency. Also as a final testament to Hunter I feel we should attach our names so that the powers that be know who we are and where we stand.

One final note, please feel free to visit the site listed to talk with others interested in the making of this film.

Sincerely,
Citizens of the World

    I hope the film is made because The Rum Diary was a wonderful read and journey. I think it would mean alot to Col Depp to have this film made in tribute to his dear friend. Please do it with style and class as the story was written. I do not want another
