Vin Diesel Sued by Former Producer Over ‘xXx’ Sequel
Diesel is being sued by a former producer who claims that he’s owed money for the upcoming sequel to “xXx.”
In his lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, George Zakk claims that he worked for Diesel’s production company One Race Films developing projects. According to the suit, in exchange for his services, Zakk received producers’ credits and a fee ranging from $250,000 to $275,000.
Zakk says that their relationship was terminated after 2007, but the agreement covered sequels to the films he helped develop for Diesel, and which Diesel starred in and produced.
The suit claims that Zakk is owed a $275,000 fee and an executive producer’s credit for the upcoming “xXx” sequel, scheduled for release in January.
A representative for Diesel has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
