The “Pirates of Caribbean” star p will star in Labyrinth. It is a movie based on a novel by Randall Sullivan. The book’s long title talks about the overall plot. LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal.
Johnny Depp will portray Russell Poole. The character is LAPD detective who spent many years investigating the still-unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls. It is a true story and a historical crime drama. It is perhaps now more than ever, socially relevant.
Labyrinth is a story about two famous rappers, Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, also known as Notorious B.I.G., who were shot in cold blood. That happened when the hip hop artists were doing extraordinarily well with millions of fans.
The violent deaths of Biggie Small and Tupac Shakur were an enormous shock to everyone in the music industry. According to The Rolling Stone, the film and book suggest there was police involvement in the murders.
“Poole believed that [Suge] Knight, with the help of LAPD officer David Mack and another associate, was responsible for B.I.G.’s death as “retaliation” for the murder of Tupac Shakur a year earlier.”
According to the AV Club, Tupac Shakur is being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame by longtime friend and collaborator Snoop Dog. The ceremony will be held on April 7, 2017.
Johnny Depp’s LAbyrinth is a story about the police officer determined to find the killers of these two famous rappers and bring him to justice. LAbyrinth reveals Poole’s allegations against fellow police officers.
Depp’s role will definitely show a different side of Johnny Depp than what his fans are accustomed to and to what have seen in the past. Russell Poole was a determined LAPD officer who fought against police corruption and sought justice for Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.
Johnny Depp’s character Russell Poole was forced to retire early in 1999 after implicating a fellow police officer or officers in Biggie’s death. Poole passed away suddenly of a heart attack in 2015 while meeting with Los Angeles Sheriff’s homicide investigators regarding the cold case, according to The Rolling Stone.
“Labyrinth” should hold a high level of interest to many and the exact release date has not been announced. Reportedly it was being filmed last December, according to Just Jared.
The story of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls’ murder will be revealed to the public in 2017 in Labyrinth.
