LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Amber Heard is being sued by the producers of unreleased film London Fields over claims that the actress has undermined the project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has been stuck in limbo with no distributor after it was previewed by a handful of critics at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival where it was panned and ignored by most of the film's cast who failed to show support.
At the opening of the festival, director Matthew Cullen sued producers Chris Hanley and Jordan Gertner claiming that they hijacked the final cut of the film.
Hanley and Gertner then counter-sued two months later stating Cullen had breached his contract along with Heard who objected to filming sex scenes despite agreeing to do so in her contract.
"While the inherent tension between actors and directors (on the one hand) and producers (on the other) is nothing new in Hollywood, the unauthorized and unlawful acts of Heard, Cullen, and others --most notably, their campaign to damage Plaintiff, the Picture, and the Picture's investors -- are perhaps unprecedented," the complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court reads.
"Indeed, as a result of their misconduct, which continues to this day, the very promising Picture remains in limbo, hijacked and placed under a cloud by Heard, Cullen, and others," it continues.
"As a result of Heard's refusal to comply with her contractual obligations -- including her improper refusal to act in provocative scenes contained in the pre-approved script -- key scenes in the script had to be removed and/or rewritten to accommodate Heard's behavior."
