Not all producers appreciate their actors. But as Johnny Depp recently finished The Rum Diaries, producer Graham King handed Depp the keys to the red ‘59 Corvette used in the film. This isn’t a form of payment, but rather a token of appreciation given to someone who certainly could afford to purchase several ‘59 Corvettes. King said that Depp was “pretty blown away by it.”
Depp plays a journalist who has escaped New York City for Puerto Rico, attempting journalism in a different climate. Depp can be seen driving the car in the film with actress Amber Heard riding shotgun, as depicted in the film’s trailer.
The Rum Diary opens in theatres October 28 of this year.
Follow the jump for the trailer.
