Voltage Pictures says Mel Gibson is dodging his deposition in a legal fight over The Professor and The Madman, according to a motion for sanctions filed Wednesday.

Gibson sued in 2016, claiming Voltage sabotaged the film, and the company countersued, asserting the actor was trying to hijack its distribution.

Voltage claims Gibson said he was going to be out of the country and unable to sit for deposition until 2019 — which caused them to push back the upcoming trial by two months — but was caught on camera Saturday at an UFC fight in Las Vegas.

"Mr. Gibson's company, Icon Productions, LLC ("Icon") initiated this action over fifteen months ago and since that time, Mr. Gibson (as well as his partner and Icon's other owner, Bruce Davey) has yet to make himself available for deposition," writes attorney Jeremiah Reynolds in the motion. The Voltage attorney says defendants were forced to file two ex parte briefs and argue at two related hearings to continue the trial so they could have enough time to depose Gibson and other witnesses before filing a motion for summary judgment.

How Hollywood Redeemed Mel Gibson

  How Hollywood Redeemed Mel Gibson In 2016, Mel Gibson hit the publicity trail for his new movie, Hacksaw Ridge, a biographical war drama that was his first directorial effort in 10 years. The film was received warmly at the Venice Film Festival and got a November release date, indicating serious Oscar potential. But Gibson, one of the biggest actors in the 1990s, had been tainted by scandal. There was his 2006 drunk-driving arrest, where he was recorded making anti-Semitic remarks. Then there was the abusive, virulently racist phone call he made to his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva in 2010, where he admitted to hitting her and said she “deserved it.

The Professor and the Madman is an American-Irish drama film, based on the book The Surgeon of Crowthorne by Simon Winchester. The film's title is taken from the edition of the book released in the U.S. and Canada.

Mel Gibson has lost a key round in his battle for control of “ The Professor and the Madman ,” potentially clearing the way for the release of the star-crossed film about the origins of a dictionary. The picture is based on Simon Winchester’s book about the collaboration between Professor James

Reynolds is asking the court to sanction Gibson and his legal team to recoup the costs of filing the ex parte motions. He's also asking the court to order Gibson to sit for deposition before Nov. 9.

Gibson's attorney has not yet responded to a request for comment in response to the claims. A trial is currently set for March.
