Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial drops trailer features dramatic adaptation of Johnny Depp & Amber Heard’s 2022 defamation trial
Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial is a movie based on former couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s highly publicized and controversial defamation trial and is set to debut exclusively on Fox’s Tubi on Friday, September 30.
As Entertainment Weekly notes, the trailer features familiar touchstones from the trial, including Depp's courtroom nonchalance, the intense scrutiny of Heard on social media, and even a reference to James Franco — who was included on Heard's witness list but never called to testify.
In the trailer, Hapka is seen donning Depp’s signature look wearing sunglasses, while Davis' Heard says, "I'm so tired of this. I can't keep doing it," while outside the courtroom. The minute-long teaser also shows flashbacks of their relationship, including a scene where she asks him if he's "jealous" of her co-star friend James Franco. Hot Take also stars Melissa Marty as Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez and Mary Carrig as Heard's attorney Elaine Bredehoft.
The film 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.
The film comes from Fox Entertainment’s MarVista Entertainment and is written by Guy Nicolucci and directed by Sara Lohman. The film was reportedly 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.
