Johnny Depp Playing Detective Investigating Tupac's and Biggie's Murders


(Radio.com) When he's not performing as one of the Hollywood Vampires, Johnny Depp is an ace-crack detective. At least that's the character he'll play in the upcoming film Labyrinth, which explores Tupac's and Biggie's deaths and the detective who tried to solve their murders.

Depp will play Russell Poole, who had difficulty ironing out all the tangled threads surrounding Biggie's death, but did manage to uncover corruption in the LAPD that appeared to be connected to it (via ScreenDaily). The film will be based on Randall Sullivan's 2002 book by the same name.

Poole was tasked with investigating Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace's death on March 9th, 1997. He believed that Death Row Records' Suge Knight worked with LAPD officer David Mack to have Biggie killed. He also alleged that Knight was responsible for Tupac's murder on September 13th, 1996, because he didn't want to pay the rapper royalties. Read more here.
