The much-discussed libel case of Johnny Depp (59) against his ex-wife Amber Heard (36) has already been filmed and we don’t have to wait long for the first images ‘Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial’. Take a look behind the ‘most viewed lawsuit of the year’.
Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial is a Tubi Original Movie from FOX Entertainment’s MarVista Entertainment and is based on the controversial trial “that shook the world,” according to the caption.
Actor Mark Hapka, best known for the soap opera Days of Our Lives , plays the lead role of Johnny Depp. The role of Amber is played by the relatively unknown actress Megan Davis.
The actor and actress’s trial attracted a lot of media attention earlier this year. The live stream of the trial in Virginia was followed by millions of people.
Johnny had sued his ex for libel. He did so in response to an op-ed the actress wrote for The Washington Post in 2018 . In it, Amber writes about domestic violence that she is said to have experienced. She did not name a name, but according to the actor it was clear that Amber is talking about him. The actress has often accused her ex of assault, something he in turn denies. Johnny won the case last June, forcing Amber to pay him millions in damages.
