Don't make Hunter mad. Hunter S. Thompson doesn't think the production company that optioned The Rum Diaries is doing a very good job. And he tells them. Man, does he tell them.

Holy shit, that's a steaming letter. I'd hate to be on the receiving end :)

Btw, that's quite a cast.

Indeed, excellent cast, pnevares.

That letter was classic HST...I'm getting tired of this waterhead fuckaround...heaven help us if he ever discovers MetaFilter! Just kidding (maybe).

Here's the offending Ms Holly Sorenson; quite a C.V., a real work of art.

Namecalling, threats of physical violence...it's like, SO juvenile!

Sure makes me glad I've avoided this author's work.

Does Hunter really have a way with words? Or does he just need a new colostomy bag? Just asking...
