Johnny Depp Punches Veteran Production Manager on Movie Set
Johnny Depp Involved in Altercation On Set
- Johnny Depp attacked a location manager on the set of his new film "LAbryrinth"
- The trouble began when time expired on the permit to keep an LA street closed for production
- Depp allegedly threw a weak punch at a veteran production manager
The trouble apparently erupted when Depp took over directing a scene which featured two of his friends as extras. Depp wanted to keep shooting the scene when the time expired on the permit to keep the downtown LA street closed. The producers kept asking to have the time extended, but the location manager told director Brad Furman they only had time for one more take.
When that location manager told Depp that they had only one more shot, the actor allegedly got irate and began yelling and threw a punch. Snitches say Depp was "drinking and smoking all day" and even offered the location manager $100-grand to punch him. They are also reporting that Depp was pulled away from the scene.
- In “LAbyrinth” Depp plays the real LAPD detective Russell Poole, who investigated the murder of Biggie Smalls.
