The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been hastily decided to be made into a movie by the streaming service Tubi.


Johnny Depp and Amber Heard first met while filming the 2011 movie The Rum Diary; they married in 2015 but divorced in 2017, ending their marriage; in 2018, through an op-ed in The Washington Post, Amber revealed Johnny’s accusations of domestic violence without directly mentioning it, and Johnny claimed that it had negatively impacted his career. Johnny was forced out of the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise and prevented from returning to his most famous role, Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

Johnny chose to sue Amber in the wake of a career-ending dust-up, seeking $50 million in damages. Amber, on the other hand, sought $100 million in damages, claiming that she was the one being treated unfairly. the trial between the two quickly became a hot topic, with the trial being reported daily on television and streamed online. Ultimately, Johnny was awarded $15 million, later reduced to $10 million by the jury’s decision, and Amber received $2 million. The trial ended only a few months ago, but a movie about it is already being fast-tracked with a cast in place.


According to a new report from Variety, the free streaming service Tubi is fast-tracking production on “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial,” about Johnny and Amber’s trial. The film will be directed by Sarah Lohman, who previously directed the made-for-TV films “The Reunion” and “Secrets in the Woods. The screenplay is by Guy Nicholucci of “The Daily Show”. The film will star Mark Hapka as Johnny, Megan Davis as Amber, Melissa Marti as Johnny’s attorney Camille Vazquez, and Mary Carrig as Amber’s attorney Elaine Bredehoeft.





Amazingly, the film will be available on Tubi this month, beginning September 30, and Tubi’s chief content officer said the film was “a timely capture of a story that has become part of the cultural zeitgeist, and a unique portrait of what millions saw unfold in the headlines over the summer that was quickly developed,” he said.


While attention-grabbing, the film will be produced in a short amount of time and could be a made-for-TV film on par with those produced by Lifetime and Hallmark. What exactly will the film be like?
