Biggie’s Murder Gets a Theatrical Treatment in ‘City of Lies’

Yesterday marked the 24th anniversary of the death of Notorious B.I.G. So it’s fitting that Saban finally unveiled the trailer for City of Lies. The film stars Johnny Depp as Russell Poole, the L.A.P.D. detective who investigated Biggie’s murder. And Forest Whitaker as Jack Jackson, a fictitious journalist who teams up with Poole in search of the truth. The release had been delayed for a couple of years due to Depp’s legal issues. But judging from the above trailer, it will be worth the wait. This hits theaters on March 19, and will drop on streaming platforms on April 9. We recommend revisiting Big’s origin story in Netflix’s I Got a Story to Tell in advance of its debut.
