Aaron Eckhart and Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins will be joining "Rum Diary," the adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson novel that stars Johnny Depp, THR reports. Eckhart is in negotiations while Jenkins is signed on for the movie, which Bruce Robinson adapted and is directing. Amber Heard also is on board.

Eckhart is part of a love triangle that sees him vying with Depp for Heard's affection, Jenkins is playing Lotterman, the man who oversees the rundown newspaper where Kemp works.
