Amber Heard is suing the producers of London Fields — a film spiked due to multiple legal issues — for ‘sexploitation’ after an “explicit pornographic sex scene” was secretly filmed using her body double.
The film, which is an adaptation of Martin Amis’ novel of the same name, was pulled from the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 after its director Mathew Cullen accused producer Christopher Hanley and his wife Roberta, the screenwriter, of failing to pay him and honour his vision for the final cut.
Several of the films high-profile stars, including Heard, her ex-husband Johnny Depp, Billy Bob Thornton and Jim Sturgess backed him up and threatened to boycott the festival.
Cullen sued the Hanleys, they sued him back, and while they were at it slapped Heard with an additional $10 million lawsuit for failing to meet her contractual obligations—she is now counter-claiming against them.
