Foray into the publishing world (11/12)


Johnny Depp recently teamed up with HarperCollins publishers to launch an imprint name after his company and signed a deal for a project named The Unravelled Tales of Bob Dylan, which will be based in part on interviews with the musician by best-selling historian Douglas Brinkley.

Depp is also a fan of the late writer Hunter S. Thompson and played Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), a film based on his novel by the same name. A film adaption of another one of his novels, The Rum Diary was released in 2011 which also has Depp as the main character. While Thompson was alive, the two became fast friends and Depp personally financed his funeral in 2005 where they shot his ashes out of a canon according to the writer’s wishes.
