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 United States cinemas mere weeks before release. The story of the Notorious BIG scandal starring Johnny Depp and Forest Whittaker has just been pulled from theatrical release - less then a month before it was supposed to open in cinemas.

However, it has now been yanked from the release schedule, with no new date announced by its distributor Global Road Entertainment.

The film-based on the book LAbyrinth by Randal Sullivan-follows retired LAPD detective Russell Poole, who originally led the investigation of the Notorious B.I.G.'s 1997 murder. It was slated to hit theaters about a month from now, on September 7th. It's especially odd given the original intent of dropping the film on Biggie's birthday.

In a turn of events that may or may not be related to this false start for City of Lies, star Johnny Depp was recently sued for an alleged assault and battery incident against the film's location manager. Depp is named in the suit alongside Furman and Depp's Infinitum Nihil production company.

The enigmatic actor's has had a hard summer, including a Rolling Stone story that called his lifestyle and finances into question; ongoing fallout from domestic violence allegations made in 2016 by his ex-wife Amber Heard; as well as a lawsuit stemming from the shooting of City of Lies. Depp had made a surprise appearance in costume as Grindelwald during a San Diego Comic-Con panel last month to help promote the film.
