"City Of Lies" won't see release until it's purchased from Global Road Entertainment.
City Of Lies, the Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker-starring film about The Notorious B.I.G.'s unsolved murder, is now being shopped around after losing its release date a month before release. According to a new report from The Wrap, Global Road Entertainment is looking to sell the finished film after its film division was seized by its creditors earlier this week.
In other words, as long as the film is purchased, there is nothing holding it back from release. However, it is unclear how long the process may take. If the film, along with other finished movies being shopped, does sell, it still may not save Global Road from bankruptcy. the studio failed to meet its projected goal $200 million in capital, which it announced in February. Unlike the film division, the TV and international sales division of the company are currently stable.
For those unfamiliar, the film follows former LAPD detective Russell Poole, played by Depp, as he works the unsolved murder cases of Biggie and Tupac Shakur. A reporter by the name of Jackson (based on Randall Sullivan), played by Whitaker, teams with Poole to attempt to crack the case.
