Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial – A movie based on former couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s highly publicized and controversial defamation trial is set to debut exclusively on Fox’s Tubi on Friday, September 30.

According to Variety, Hot Take follows the tumultuous relationship — in and out of court — of Depp and Heard, dramatizing the two-month defamation trial that concluded June 1, with the jury finding that Heard had defamed Depp by alluding to domestic violence allegations against him in a December 2018 op-ed piece.

The jury also held Depp liable for a defamatory statement made about Heard by his lawyer. Depp will be played by Mark Hapka (Parallels, Days of Our Lives) alongside Megan Davis (Alone in the Dark) as Heard. Depp’s ace attorney Camille Vasquez will be played by Melissa Marty (Station 19) with Mary Carrig (Law & Order: True Crime) playing Heard’s former lawyer Elaine Bredehoft.

The film comes from Fox Entertainment’s MarVista Entertainment and is written by Guy Nicolucci and directed by Sara Lohman. Per the report, the movie was fast-tracked into production by Tubi and MarVista “to capture a timely take on a story that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, painting a unique picture of what millions watched play out in the headlines over the summer,” Adam Lewinson, Tubi’s chief content officer, said in a statement.

‘Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial’ is one of many timely, culturally relevant original movies to come from our expanding partnership and slate of movies being produced in collaboration with Tubi,” said Hannah Pillemer, EVP creative of affairs for MarVista. “Connecting viewers to stories with this kind of social currency and topicality make watching them a must for any fan of pop culture or celebrity drama.”
