Tubi to release a Johnny Depp-Amber Heard movie ‘Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial’

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's legal battle is headed to the small screen. Nearly four months after the jury came to a verdict in the Pirates of the Caribbean star's defamation trial against the Aquaman actress, Tubi released the trailer for the upcoming movie, Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial. The one-minute clip features several scenes recreating the infamous trial – including parts of both Depp and Heard's testimonies as well as the scrutiny the actress received on social media. "Its day one of the Depp vs. Heard defamation trial," a reporter says in the trailer. "Though fans are showing support for both sides, there's clearly a favourite here." The film stars Mark Hapka and Megan Davis as the former couple, with Melissa Marty playing Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez, and Mary Carrig as Heard's attorney Elaine Bredehoft. Following a six-week trial, a Virginia jury rendered their verdict mostly in Depp's favour, ruling that Heard was liable for defaming her ex-husband in a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post, describing herself as a "public figure representing domestic abuse." Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial hit Tubi on Sept. 30.
