Deadline reports that distribution company Global Road has not set a new release date, leaving the film's future hanging in the balance. But you'll have to temper that excitement, because even though the movie was slated to come out exactly one month from today, it has now been yanked from release altogether.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp's crime thriller City of Lies won't be getting a theatrical release after all. It's especially odd given the original intent of dropping the film on Biggie's birthday.
City of Lies is directed by Brad Furman, whose previous work includes The Lincoln Lawyer with Matthew McConaughey and The Infiltrator with Bryan Cranston.
The decision to pull the film comes after Gregg Rocky Brooks, a former location manager, sued Depp, alleging that the actor punched him in the ribs and verbally assaulted him during a drunken tirade.

The film had a hard production process with Depp allegedly assaulting a crew member, former location manager Greg "Rocky" Brooks, on set in Los Angeles.
