Johnny Depp Signs onto ‘Labyrinth’


Johnny Depp will star in Labyrinth. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor has been cast in the role of Russell Poole, the detective who headed the investigation into the murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G., according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Poole, a Los Angeles detective, was given the tricky task to find out who murdered the ‘Juicy’ hitmaker. He later became convinced that the rapper’s death was caused by “gangsta cops” in his force.

However, his theory has been shelved by others, including fellow Los Angeles police detective Greg Kading, who believes it was more likely to be gang members who were responsible for the rapper’s untimely death.

Labyrinth – which is directed by Brad Furman – has been adapted from the book Labyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implications of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal, which is journalist Randall Sullivan’s account of the series of the events leading up to and after the murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G.
