Mel Gibson being sued for plagiarism

`Juan Catlett claims that Gibson used scenes from his 1991 film, Return to Aztlan, in Apocalypto. The storylines basically cover the same ground, depicting the Mayan civilisation imploding in a time of great drought.

Catlett alleges that Gibson asked for a copy of his film while shooting Apocalypto and that scenes from Return to Aztlan ended up in Gibson’s film. Catlett has now started legal proceedings against Gibson.’
