Johnny Depp's Notorious BIG Movie Pulled A Month From Release

Johnny Depp Forest Whitaker City of Lies Notorious BIG Biggie Tupac Movie Pulled

As a result, it's unclear when or if the film will be officially released.

Distributor Global Road Entertainment confirmed to industry press on Monday that the film would no longer be released in the USA on 7 September as planned but did not give further comment or any indication of a new release date.

City of Lies, the big-screen thriller starring Johnny Depp as an LAPD detective investigating the unsolved murder of the rapper Notorious B.I.G., has been pulled from Global Road's release schedule a month before its planned wide release on September 7.

Global Road, which acquired the movie's original distributor Open Road last summer, has not set a new date for the pic, we're told. 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.

"In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies", reads a line from the movie's description. Depp denied the allegations and Heard later issued a joint statement with her ex-husband saying "there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm".

Those reports caused many fans of the Fantastic Beasts franchise to criticize Depp's casting in the upcoming sequel.

The first trailer for City of Lies, formerly titled LAbyrinth, was released in May.

Another month, another worsening string of fates for Johnny Depp.

It's far from the only legal battle Depp has become involved in recently. Hopefully it won't be too long of a wait before we see City of Lies, as it will be great to see the investigation of the murder of Tupac and Notorious BIG told on the big screen.
