The information site The Hollywood Reporter writes about this.|
The film will be directed by Brad Furman (Lincoln for the Lawyer), and the script is written by Christian Contreras, who adapted the novel by Randall Sullivan.
While investigating the murders of famous rappers, Poole began to suspect that a group of cops from his unit were associated with the record label Death Row Records and the gangster group Bloods . Poole had a conflict with the chief of police, and as a result Russell quit his job in protest.
This year, the game of Depp could be seen in the fantasy "Alice Through the Looking Glass", which became one of the loudest failures of the summer, and the actor's plans for the future included "The Invisible Man" and the film about Dominique Strauss -Kane.
