Johnny Depp's upcoming thriller about the Notorious B.I.G. murder has been pulled from the release calendar only a month before it was set to debut.

Johnny Depp's next movie has been pulled from theatrical release with just a month to go.

Global Road Entertainment - which has so far released action movie Hotel Artemis, canine comedy Show Dogs and romantic drama Midnight Sun in 2018 - had previously set City of Lies for a September 7 bow.

City of Lies is based on Randall Sullivan's book, LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records' Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal.

The report claims that a deal has been agreed with the player training away from the first-team squad as he pushes for a move. The Croatia worldwide has been linked with a move to Serie A giants Inter Milan .

"While Global Road is pulling its film, at least for the time being, Warner going full steam ahead with the November tentpole Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, whose ensemble cast includes Depp".

The first "City Of Lies" trailer was released in May, on what would have been Biggie's 46th birthday. The distributor has yet to announce a new date for the Brad Furman-directed film, which stars Forest Whitaker as a journalist who partners with Depp's character. Additionally, a crewmember on City of Lies claims Depp punched him twice, then lost his job when he refused to promise that he wouldn't sue over the matter.

The news comes less than month after the film's location manager sued Depp, accusing the actor of assault and battery on the set in April 2017. Depp denied the allegations and Heard later issued a joint statement with her ex-husband saying "there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm".
