One of the most talked-about topics earlier this year was the defamation trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The actor ultimately prevailed in the legal action he had brought against his ex-wife Amber. In a 2018 Washington Post article, where she identified herself as a victim of domestic abuse, Johnny Depp had been sued by Amber Heard for defamation. According to recent reports, a feature film based on this highly contentious defamation trial will be released later this month. The televised trial had cast both celebrities in a bad light at various times over the course of six weeks. The movie, Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial, is scheduled to premiere on September 30 only on the free Tubi streaming service.
A new movie called Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial is about the contentious defamation case involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. On September 30, it will make its debut only on the free Tubi streaming platform. Mark Hapka portrays Johnny Depp in the movie, and Megan Davis plays Amber Heard. In addition to Hapka and Davis, Melissa Marty will play Camille Vasquez, the attorney for Depp, and Mary Carrig will play Elaine Bredehoft, the attorney for Heard.
Variety claims that Hot Take focuses on Depp and Heard’s turbulent relationship, both inside and outside of the courtroom. The two-month defamation trial that ended on June 1 is also dramatised. MarVista Entertainment of Fox Entertainment is the source of Hot Take.
Sara Lohman is the film’s director, and Guy Nicolucci wrote the script. Brittany Clemons, Angie Day, Marianne C. Wunch, Hannah Pillemer, and Fernando Szew are the executive producers of the movie. Under their Ninth House label, Autumn Federici and Kristifor Cvijetic work as producers.
On the sets of The Rum Diary in 2009, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard crossed paths and soon after began dating. They tied the knot in 2015. Amber Heard was dating photographer Tasya Van Ree at the time, and Johnny Depp was engaged in a long-term relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis. After parting ways with their respective ex-partners in 2011, the two started dating in secret. In 2014, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard got married.
When a photo of the actress wearing an elaborate engagement ring surfaced, the news went viral. On Depp’s private island in the Bahamas, they were wed in a very private ceremony in 2015.
In 2016, Heard requested a divorce, alleging that Depp had physically abused her while inebriated during their marriage. Heard was “trying to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse,” according to Depp, who refuted the claims. In 2017, their divorce became final.
Because of an opinion piece Amber Heard published in the Washington Post in 2018, Johnny Depp later sued her for defamation. I spoke out against sexual violence and was attacked by our culture, according to the op-ed. That must alter,” Heard asserted that she had endured domestic violence. She did not however mention Depp.
