Deadline exclusively reports that Louis Herthum and Shamier Anderson are the latest names to be joining the cast of LAbyrinth, the Brad Furman-directed drama about the investigation into the murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG.
The film will focus on Russell Poole, a disgraced LAPD Detective who is unable to solve his biggest case…the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. ‘Jack’ Jackson, a journalist desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to crack the case and teams up with Poole. As Poole relives the unbelievable story of power, corruption and crime, Jackson begins to unravel a growing web of scandal and deception.
