    The defamation trial between ex-actor couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard drew massive attention from April to June 2022 – not least because the entire trial was broadcast live. But that’s not all: the first feature film on the subject has been around for almost four months. The trailer for the movie “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial” was released on Wednesday, September 28th.

    The film can be seen on the free US streaming service Tubi from Friday, September 30th. When and if the film will be released in Germany is not yet known. It was produced by former indie studio MarVista Entertainment, which Fox Entertainment bought in 2021.

    The roles were filled by rather unknown actors. Mark Hapka, who starred in the 2015 science fiction film Parallels, plays Johnny Depp. Megan Davis (guest starring on shows like Bones and American Horror Story) will play Amber Heard. Melissa Marty (“Station 19”) plays Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, while Mary Carrig (“Law & Order True Crime”) plays Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft.

    It will probably not be the last film about the headline-grabbing trial. The first documentary film was released at the beginning of September “Johnny vs. Amber: The US Trial” on the US broadcaster Discovery.

    In a 2018 article for the Washington Post, Heard (“Aquaman”) described himself as a victim of domestic violence. Although she didn’t give a name, it was clear from the context that Depp was meant. The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor denies abusing his then-wife and has accused her of defamation. In June, the grand jury largely agreed with Depp. Heard will now have to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. She received $2 million for her counterclaim.
