Notorious BIG Film Pulled From Theatres Right Before Release
“City of Lies – a crime film starring Johnny Depp and Forrest Whittaker, about the investigation into the death of rapper Notorious BIG – has reportedly been pulled from theatrical release a month before it was due to come out.
The film, directed by Brad Furman, follows LAPD detective Russell Poole (Depp) investigating the murder of Notorious BIG, also known as Biggie Smalls (real name Christopher Wallace), the year after the murder of fellow rapper Tupac Shakur. Whittaker plays journalist Jack Johnson, who joins forces with Poole to solve the murder.
Distributor Global Road Entertainment confirmed to industry press on Monday that the film would no longer be released in the US on 7 September as planned but did not give further comment or any indication of a new release date.”
