Someone else besides Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard is looking to take the acclaimed actor to court. Back in 2018, Depp starred in the film City of Lies alongside Forest Whitaker. In the film, Depp portrayed real-life Los Angeles Police Department detective Russell Poole who investigated the murders of Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
One month before the film was to hit theaters, it was pulled and shelved. While there hasn’t been any further announcement regarding a worldwide release date (although it has been leaked), it hasn’t kept the movie from making headlines. Earlier this year, a crew member from the film named Gregg “Rocky” Brooks filed a lawsuit against Depp claiming that the actor punched him twice in the ribs when Brooks attempted to impose the restrictions of certain permits.
