So yeah, releasing the film in the midst of a lawsuit probably isn't the best of ideas. City of Lies was initially scheduled for release on September 7, but the release is now "undated", as Variety reports.

Due for release on 7th September, Brad Furman's investigative crime drama City of Lies, starring Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker, has been pulled from U.S. cinemas mere weeks before release. 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.

The news comes less than month after the film's location manager sued Depp, accusing the actor of assault and battery on the set in April 2017.

Depp has faced a number of legal and financial woes, recently granting a wide-ranging interview to Rolling Stone that showcased the actor's decline.

"In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies", reads a line from the movie's description.

While City Of Lies' future is up in the air, Depp's next big 2018 release, Fantastic Beasts: Thre Crimes of Grindelwald, is set for release in November. According to the movie's synopsis, both Depp and Whitaker's characters are relentless in their quest to unveil a conspiracy over why the mystery of Smalls' death (which followed six months after rival Tupac Shakur's death in Las Vegas) remains unsolved.

City Of Lies has been shelved, for now. However, the most recent controversy surrounding Johnny Depp is nothing compared to Kevin Spacey's allegations, so that probably isn't actually Global Road's intentions.
