The film will premiere on the streaming platform Tubi on September 30 and promises to take us even further into the trial between Johnny Depp and Heard, which ended on June 1 with the actor’s victory, to which the ex-wife will have to pay 10 Millions of dollars.
Hot Take: The Depp / Heard test will see Mark Hapka (actor seen in films like Parallels and Days of our lives ) in the role of Depp and Megan Davis (of Alone in the dark ) in those of Heard.
The libel trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
As for the lawyers, Melissa Marty will be Johnny Camille Vasquez’s lawyer, while Mary Carrig will be Elaine Bredehoft, Amber’s defender.
She was accused of defamation for her editorial in 2018 in which she took sides against Depp in the Washington Post, where she spoke of him as a violent man.
Hot Take, therefore, will take us even deeper into the relationship between Depp, the protagonist of the film The Favorite, where he plays an extraordinary Louis XV, and Heard, whose presence in Aquaman 2 has been confirmed, dramatizing the process that has seen opposing the two ex-spouses, who met on the set of The Rum Diary.
A tumultuous relationship lasted from 2012 to 2016, when the couple (a year after their wedding anniversary) decided to separate after Depp’s wife accused the actor of domestic violence by giving away the most mediatic legal battle in history.
