Location manager Greg "Rocky" Brooks is also suing the film's director and producers for unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The film, which was then called LAbyrinth, is based on the book of that name by Randall Sullivan, and chronicles police investigations of the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

Brooks claimed the actor had already punched him twice in the rib cage, before bodyguards are said to have removed him from the scene.

Mr. Furman states that Depp "respects other artists", and while movie sets become stressful and take a lot of work, there simply "isn't one (a story) here", as much as Brooks would like there to be.


After extending the permit twice, Brooks determined that the shot the group was working on would have to be the last of the night - news that enraged the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star. Depp told him that he would give him $100,000 if he were to strike Johnny back in the face.

Brooks claims Depp hired 2 of his friends for a scene in downtown L.A. on April 13, 2017. Furman responded, "Why don't you tell that to Johnny Depp?".

Brooks contends that he tried to explain that his job required him to make sure the production was in compliance with city permits. Before Rocky reached the officer, he claims Depp attacked him and angrily screamed, "Who the f*** are you?" Rocky also claims Depp's breath reeked of alcohol during the altercation. "You have no right to tell me what to do!"

Ultimately, Gregg claims he was sacked from production when he refused to sign a release waiving his right to sue over the incident. The movie is set to open September 7 from Global Road Entertainment.
