Forest Whitaker is in talks to co-star with Johnny Depp in the Open Road crime thriller “Labyrinth,” which revolves around the unsolved murders of rapper Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.

Brad Furman is directing with production set to start in mid-November.

In the movie, disgraced LAPD detective Russell Poole (Depp), is unable to solve his biggest case – the murders of the two music icons. After two decades, the case remains open. “Jack” Jackson, a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. He tracks down Poole, and the two enter into an uneasy partnership to finally put this case to rest. Relentless in their hunt for the truth, the two men threaten to crack the foundation of the LAPD while fighting for their own redemption.
