City of Lies, the film about the detective investigating the unsolved murder of rapper The Notorious B.I.G., has been pulled from Global Road’s schedule a month before it’s release date.
About The Film:
Based on the true story of one of the most notorious and unsolved cases in recent memory, City of Lies is a provocative thriller revealing a never-before-seen look at the infamous murder of The Notorious B.I.G. shortly following the death of Tupac Shakur.
L.A.P.D. detective Russell Poole (Johnny Depp) has spent years trying to solve his biggest case, but after two decades, the investigation remains open. “Jack” Jackson (Forest Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why.
In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies. Relentless in their hunt, these two determined men threaten to uncover the conspiracy and crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D. and an entire city.
Based on the nonfiction book LAbyrinth, written by Randall Sullivan.

No one is saying a word about why the film was pulled.
My guess is maybe someone realized how disgraceful it is for Hollywood to capitalize off of Biggie’s murder rather than putting energy towards solving the cold case.
