Perhaps it was just a matter of time until this occurred, but this soon? It’s now being rumored that a feature film based on the extremely contentious defamation lawsuit involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will be released later this month.
The broadcast trial had shown both celebrities in a poor light at various stages over the course of six weeks, albeit the judgement in the end was overwhelmingly in Depp’s favor.
Each actor had accused the other of domestic abuse, and the jury finally agreed with Depp’s claim that the claims against him were made up.
Because the trial had received so much attention, there was more than enough drama to fill a tale. Enter Tubi, a free streaming service that will screen the new film Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial.
The video recreates the trial and will be available for free on Fox’s Tubi beginning Friday, Sept. 30.
Cast members have also been announced. Depp will be played by Mark Hapka (Parallels, Days of Our Lives) alongside Megan Davis (Alone in the Dark) as Heard. Depp’s ace attorney Camille Vasquez will be played by Melissa Marty (Station 19) with Mary Carrig (Law & Order: True Crime) playing Heard’s former lawyer Elaine Bredehoft.
