Here’s the first official trailer for Johnny Depp’s new movie City Of Lies, co-starring Forest Whitaker and directed by Brad Furman, (The Lincoln Lawyer).
The movie is based on the Pulitzer nominated novel LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan which examined the details surrounding the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G and the possible involvement of the Los Angeles police department in their deaths.
The trailer, like most these days, gives away a large portion of the plot which rattles along like so:
Former LAPD detective, Russell Poole joins forces with journalist Jack Jackson nearly two decades after the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. to find out the truth.
Many documentaries have been made theorising what happened and who was ultimately responsible for the deaths of these two young artists, but City Of Lies apparently only deals with the the case work of Poole. A man who unearthed a load of details and information about an alleged conspiracy involving the LAPD.
City Of Lies is scheduled for release on September 7th.
