Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Stealth TV Movie We SCOOPED Coming to Tubi Streaming Service


We told you back on June 29th that a stealth TV movie about the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial was being shot. We thought maybe it was for Lifetime.

Instead, Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial is coming to Tubi streaming, whatever that is, on September 30th.

Mark Hapka plays Johnny Depp and Megan Davis is Amber Heard. The movie is written by Guy Nicolucci and directed by Sara Lohman. Production company is Fox Entertainment’s indie studio MarVista Entertainment.

This should be a hoot. Nicolucci was a staff writer for Jon Stewart and for Conan O’Brien for years. Hapka was a regular years ago on “Days of our Lives.” So he knows how to sell a soap opera. And that’s what the Depp-Heard trial was!

No word yet on who else is in the cast, or how to watch Tubi. But if this isn’t a Lifetime movie, come on…
