Johnny Depp's City Of Lies Pulled From Release By the Studio

Due for release on 7th September, Brad Furman's investigative crime drama City of Lies, starring Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker, has been pulled from USA cinemas mere weeks before release.

City of Lies is based on Randall Sullivan's book, LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records' Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal. But you'll have to temper that excitement, because even though the movie was slated to come out exactly one month from today, it has now been yanked from release altogether.

Rap fans are going to have to wait a little longer than expected to see an upcoming Johnny Depp-starring film about the unsolved murders of Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac. Last month, Depp was sued for assault and battery by the film's location manager Gregg "Rocky" Brooks. "Jack" Jackson (Forest Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why.

Representatives for Furman, Depp, and Good Film Productions did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Depp, who faced accusations of domestic violence in his divorce from Amber Heard, a year ago generated controversy for another film he's attached to, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald". This fueled recent rumors of physical assault that the actor was previously battling with regards to his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who divorced him after just 15 months of marriage. The film was directed by Brad Furman, who worked on The Lincoln Lawyer and The Infiltrator.
