Johnny Depp has signed on to “Labyrinth,” an independent film about the detective that investigated the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
The project will see Depp play Russell Poole, an LAPD detective who was a rising star in the department until he accused a fellow officer of involvement in the death of Biggie Smalls. He would later quit the force and become a private detective and look into the killing of Biggie’s rival Tupac.
Biggie’s and Makaveli’s murders remain unsolved, and people have countless theories about what actually happened. Stay tuned for more news about Labyrinth, which has Brad Furman (who directed Lincoln Lawyer) attached to the project, as well.
