Amber Heard is reportedly being sued for $10 million after she allegedly conspired to sabotage her film London Fields. In a suit filed on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, production company Nicola Six (specifically named after Heard’s character in the drama) claimed that the actress — along with the film’s director Mathew Cullen — breached her contract by refusing to shoot the script and failing to show up at the Toronto International Film Festival to help promote the movie.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the suit claims that “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 [Nicola Six], the Picture, and the Picture’s investors — are perhaps unprecedented.”
It continued, “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…
Cullen sued Nicola Six prior to Heard’s lawsuit after he said the film was edited by the production company to include scenes of 9/11 “jumpers” cut with pornography. He also claimed that the movie hadn’t been funded in the way he was originally promised. Heard’s recent actions are clearly in support of the director.
The suit also claims that “In an effort to intimidate Nicola Six, Heard falsely claimed to Nicola Six that she had not contractually agreed to allow the use of nudity in the Picture” and that she refused to act in “provocative scenes,” meaning that “key scenes in the script had to be removed and/or rewritten to accommodate Heard’s behavior.”
Honestly this comes at a pretty rough time, considering Heard gave away the $7 million she got from her divorce settlement from Johnny Depp. What do you think? Sound off in the comments below.
