Hot Take: The Depp / Heard Trial, a movie narrates the trial in which Johnny Depp won against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Heard was ordered to pay $ 10 million for defamation by a Fairfax jury in Virginia and has recently published its trailer on the free streaming site Tubi.
Mark Hapka will play Johnny Depp in the movie, directed by Sara Lohman, while Megan Davis will play Amber Heard. Depp’s Attorney, Camille Vasquez, will be played by Melissa Marty, while Mary Carrig will play Elaine Bredehoft Heard’s lawyer. The movie will release on Tubi on September 30.
To have a timely version of a story that entered the cultural zeitgeist and painted a different picture of what millions saw acting in the headlines over the summer, Tubi and MarVista accelerated the film’s production, according to a statement from Adam Lewinson, the chief content officer of Tubi.
According to Hannah Pillemer, EVP Creative of Affairs at MarVista, “The Depp/Heard Trial is one of several contemporary, and culturally relevant original films developed from our increasing partnership and slate of films made in conjunction with Tubi.” Watching them is a requirement for every follower of pop culture or celebrity drama since they connect viewers to tales with this kind of social currency and topicality.
Johnny Depp has been rebuilding his life following the outcome of the trial. He is gradually resuming his profession, which had been put on hold for a while owing to legal issues. He will portray French king Louis XV in an upcoming film, Jeanne Du Barry. On the other side, Heard is experiencing the opposite outcome. She significantly reduced her part in the next Aquaman movie when the trial was over, and many of her friends reportedly abandoned her.
