Hunter S. Thompson – The Gonzo Papers: Anthology

Just came across this while browsing on Amazon. It is due to be released by Picador on October 2nd 2009 and it appears to be The Gonzo Papers Vol 1, 2 ,3 & 4 all within the one cover. It will be a paperback and a whopping 1248 pages.

What do you think? Not sure about the cover myself, kind of drab. (Maybe it is the tan colour that is putting me off – oh well minor complaint)

More Extras Required For The Rum Diary

THE RUM DIARY

Producers of The Rum Diary are still scouting for extras to fill out scenes with Johnny Depp, Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard. It is estimated that almost 3,500 people are needed over the 49 day filming schedule. 

One of the biggest challanges facing director Bruce Robinson is recreating the carnival of Saint Thomas.  For that scene in particular around 800 people are needed, of whom 200 have to be tourists. One of the many problem’s facing the casting director is getting people with the right look for a film set in 1960’s. Issues such as hair styles can prove to be a huge problem and anybody interested in being an extra must be prepared to have their hair styled in the appropriate manner to match the era in question. Another problem is finding enough fair skinned people to act as tourists and in a sense stand out from the Puerto Rican extras.  

Anybody that is interested in trying out should send a full body photo to extraspr@gmail.com, accompanied by your name, age, height & clothes size. Applicants should also mention what town they are from, because filming will take place  in Vega Baja, Ceiba and Naguabo. Oh and you might want to check out this great shot of Johnny Depp as Paul Kemp from recent filming on the island.
