Johnny Depp will be starring in a brand new upcoming thriller as an investigative detective on the murder of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. According to Entertainment Weekly, the upcoming film titled, Labyrinth has now been acquired by Open Road Films for the North American distribution rights. The script was written by Christian Contreras, adapting Randall Sullivan’s in-depth 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. In an announcement made on Monday, Open Road’s CEO Tom Ortenberg called the project “an edgy and timely investigative thriller.”
The film will be directed by Brad Furman, with production set to begin in November of this year. Miriam Segal, who’s collaborated with Furman in the past on The Infiltrator, will be the producer of the film. Labyrinth is centered on Russell Poole (Depp), a shunned LAPD detective whose failed to solve the murder cases of the iconic, rival hip-hop artists for ten years. He eventually partners up with a reporter as a desperate attempt to salvage his reputation and to finally revel the truth behind the slaying of Tupac and Biggie.
It’s clear that the legendary artists continue to have an immense impact and contribution to today’s culture. With the upcoming Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me premiering in November and the late-great moving story of Biggie in Notorious (2009), the public will continue to pay tribute and recognition to these timeless artists and their work.
