Forest Whitaker is poised to team up with Johnny Depp in Labyrinth, a new take on the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG.

According to Deadline, Whitaker will play a journalist who teams up with a disgraced LAPD detective (Depp) to solve the murders of the hip hop icons. Based on the book of the same name by Labyrinth, the film will be directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer).

Whitaker can currently be seen on the big screen in Arrival and will be seen next month in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
