Over a year ago, London Fields debuted at the Toronto Film Festival and tongues were sent wagging by the no-show of many of the movie's stars.
The movie was mired in legal action as director Mathew Cullen sued Christopher Hanley's Nicola Six Limited for fraud, claiming producers hijacked the final cut of the film changing it from his vision.
However, Hanley hit back with counterclaims accusing Cullen of failing to deliver the film - based on British writer Martin Amis' novel of the same name - on budget and on time.
On Monday, a new lawsuit was filed against Heard at Los Angeles Superior Court accusing the star of not fulfilling her contracted duties either on set or on the promotional tour and of conspiring with Cullen to violate his contractual agreements.
Heard got into an argument with Nicola Six Limited over the use of n*de scenes in the final cut.
The papers state: "In an effort to intimidate Nicola Six, Heard falsely claimed to Nicola Six that she had not contractually agreed to allow the use of n*dity in the Picture.
"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 behaviour."
The producers are seeking a minimum of $10million in compensatory damages from her.
