Wellington: Johnny Depp has said that while filming the latest silver screen adaptation of a Hunter S. Thompson novel ‘The Rum Diary,’ he could strongly feel the spirit of the book’s deceased writer.
Although the novelist, who was a good friend of the 48-year-old actor, was no longer on the physical plane, Depp decided to move forward with the production on his own during which he felt the deceased novelists soul.
“Even though my partner is not right next to me, we’re going to still produce this film together, and ultimately we did. Even if his presence, if he wasn’t visible, we still produced the film together,” Stuff.co.nz quoted him as telling MTV News.
According to Depp, the film, which is an adaptation of Thompson’s book ‘The Rum Diary’, is a dedication to the late writer’s legacy.
