Amber Heard has been sanctioned in a lawsuit over her movie London Fields.
The Justice League star’s film was due to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2015, but it was pulled from the schedule at the last minute after director Matthew Cullen filed a lawsuit against the producers, accusing them of tampering with the film without his permission.
In late 2016, the filmmakers responded by filing a $10 million lawsuit against Amber for alleged breach of contract, conspiring with the director, and for refusing to attend promotional appearances.
Amber later countersued producer Christopher Hanley and his wife Roberta, who wrote the movie adaptation, claiming they made a secret cut of the movie, which featured nude or sex scenes using a body double – a violation of her contract.
Hanley filed a motion in October (17) to force Amber to sit for a deposition, claiming she was given notice that she would need to do so seven months prior, but she repeatedly postponed or did not agree to a date to give her testimony under oath due to her busy filming schedule.
Hanley’s production company bosses also wanted the federal court judge overseeing the case to hit the 31-year-old actress with $70,000 in sanctions for her alleged evasiveness.
According to TheBlast.com, the lawmaker has granted their request in part and fined Heard $6,850.
The case is ongoing.
