U.S. attorneys in Ocala are asking a judge to restrict Snipes' travel outside the United States because he attended a $20 million party last November for the opening of the $1.5 billion Atlantis Hotel resort.

A jury convicted the action star last year of three counts of willfully failing to file his income taxes. He is free on bond while he appeals the convictions and his three-year prison sentence to the 11th Circuit Court in Atlanta.

A federal judge last year said Snipes could only travel to London and Bangkok for work on movies.

Snipes' attorney declined to comment.
