Lucky Amber Heard Takes Role Opposite Depp

Reportedly Amber Heard is the lucky actress to take every woman's dream job: Playing a romantic interest for Johnny Depp's character in a movie. The two will star together in Rum Diary, a film adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson novel. Here's more:

Diary will place Heard at the front and center of a love triangle in the tale of a washed-up, hard-drinking journalist named Paul Kemp (Depp) in 1950s Puerto Rico. Heard will play Chenault, the free-spirited girlfriend of a fellow journalist who cheats on him with Kemp, trying to convince him to run away with her.

The role drew strong interest from many a leading lady (Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley were among those reported to have been vying for it), though some had reservations regarding the nudity the role calls for. But that didn't inhibit Heard — in the upcoming ensemble Bret Easton Ellis adaptation The Informers, she spends all but one scene in the flesh. Diary, however, also will offer the opportunity to showcase some dramatic chops.

The role of the third point of the love triangle is still open. What male actor could join the cast to make Heard the luckiest actress?

This movie looks interesting. As an aside, of the 30+ movies I saw at Sundance this year, The Informers was hands down the absolute WORST of all of them.

I'm excited for this one. If I'm not mistaken, they (though I have no idea who they are) have been trying to get this film made for years.
