The new film of Hunter S. Thompson’s first book might be adding a few new faces to the cast.
Aaron Eckhart is in talks to join the project, while Oscar-nominated actor Richard Jenkins has already signed on. Jenkins joins previously signed actors Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, who played Raoul Duke, another one of Thompson’s alter-egos in “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”
Bruce Robinson, best known for writing and directing “Withnail and I,” has written the screenplay and is directing. Shooting is scheduled to begin March 30th in Puerto Rico.
