‘Out-of-control’ Johnny Depp sued for alleged attack on film set

‘Out-of-control’ Johnny Depp sued for alleged attack on film set

Depp reportedly wanted to keep filming, and while one producer, concerned with the actor's volatility, went to get a police officer, an altercation broke out. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Brooks said he was sacked from the "City of Lies" production three days later after he refused to sign a release giving up his right to sue Depp over the incident.

That conversation was seemingly cut short when the apparently booze on the breath Pirates of the Caribbean star supposedly start screaming obscenities at Brooks and proceeded to strike him "twice in the lower left side of his rib cage and causing pain".

Depp is also locked in a legal battle that started a year ago with The Management Group (TMG), who counter-sued Depp after the actor sued its principals Joel and Robert Mandel for allegedly collecting millions in fees without his consent.

The lawsuit also says Depp said, "I DON'T GIVE A F- WHO YOU ARE AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!" The filmmakers should have known that that Depp was using alcohol and drugs and was a threat to the well-being of others on the set, it says.

ET Canada has reached out to Depp's rep for comment.

According to Brooks, the production had a permit to shoot until 7pm outside the hotel, and until 10pm. inside. And it's not just for the alleged assault but wrongful termination and retailation as well.
