    City of Lies Teaser Trailer Starring Johnny Depp & Forest Whitaker

    City of Lies Teaser Trailer Starring Johnny Depp & Forest Whitaker Saban Films has released the official City of Lies teaser trailer starring Johnny Depp and Forest Whitaker. The biographical crime drama is based on the book LAbyrinth by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Randall Sullivan. The movie follows the investigation into the murder of iconic rap artist Christopher Wallace, aka the Notorious B.I.G. You can check out the teaser now in the player below along with the poster! In September 1996, Tupac Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. In March 1997, the Notorious B.I.G. was similarly shot after an awards show in Los Angeles. Neither crime has ever been solved.
