As announced, Johnny Depp is creating a new film, City of Lies, based on the Los Angeles police department’s flawed investigations of the homicides of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. However, it appears the actor has hit a multi-million dollar roadblock as City of Lies is being now engaged in a $10 Million lawsuit.
According to reports, Bank Leumi has failed a lawsuit against Global Road Entertainment and other disturbers after they decided not to support the release of City of Lies due to the “current environment surrounding (the film).”
This follows reports that Depp allegedly punched a locations manager on the films set before shouting “I’ll give you $100,000 to punch me right now” leading to the actor being sued for the alteration.
As of now, it is unclear whether the film which is based on Randall Sullivan’s 2003 book, LAbrynth, and was formerly set of a Sep. 7 debut will ever be released. But, for the sake of Hip-hop, we hope all is solved to make up for that HORRIBLE Tupac Biopic.
