Johnny Depp Has Some New Legal Trouble Actor Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a crew member on the set of a movie about Tupac and Notorious BIG. Location manager Greg “Rocky” Brooks is suing Depp, alleging that he was punched twice and fired from the production when he refused to promise not to sue over the incident.
Brooks is also suing the film’s director and producers for unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed on 6 July in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The name of the movie is City of Lies. It is set for a September 7th release.
Depp is playing the role of LA police detective who for years investigated the still-unsolved 1997 death of the rapper Notorious BIG.
