Johnny Depp’s much-anticipated film, City of Lies, which is centred on the life of late rapper The Notorious B.I.G. reportedly has been pulled from cinemas a month before its scheduled release.
According to Telegraph, the film which stars Depp and Forrest Whittaker was supposed to open in North America on 7 September via Global Road Entertainment, but hours ago, Global Road Entertainment confirmed that the film would no longer be released in the US on 7 September.
No new date has been set, and no reason was given for why the film had been pulled from its slated release.
City Of Lies has been plagued with drama since production began.
There were reports of Depp misbehaving on set, including an allegation that he assaulted a crew member, former location manager Greg ‘Rocky’ Brooks, while on set in Los Angeles.
Last month, Brooks filed a lawsuit against him.
Also, Depp has been embroiled in personal drama of his own, the most recent being settling the $25m fraud case against his former business managers, one month before the trial was set to begin.
Now, City of Lies is pulled and we can’t wait to see how this pans out.
