Vin Diesel Gets Victory In xXx: Return of Xander Cage Lawsuit

Aside from what has been beefing up between the Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel, the paparazzi lately centered the camera on Fast 8 crew members. Now Vin Diesel is again in the news over his ex-partner in business, George Zakk, who is seeking payments and producer credit in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Vin Diesel has bagged the big victory in the lawsuit filed by Zakk. The court has rejected the claims brought by Zakk over xXx: Return of Xander Cage – a sequel to 2002 action movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Zakk was a former business partner in Diesel’s One Race Films and alleged Diesel that he had an oral agreement to get “$250,00 to $275,000 fee and producer credits” for the films he helped develop for Diesel.

“This case is a waste of judicial resources,” Bryan Freedman, Diesel’s attorney said in a report filed by Complex.

“The plaintiff didn’t do one second of work on xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and admittedly hasn’t worked with Vin Diesel at all since 2007,” he added.

Moreover, Freedman stated that as per his client the lawsuit was “an attempt to grab money”. But it is now being doused by the court.

LA Superior Court Judge, John Boyle, said that the plaintiff didn’t specify when the oral agreement actually happened.

“For example, it is unclear whether the alleged agreement is that Plaintiff is to be paid and credited for sequels — even if Plaintiff did not develop or work on the sequels — merely because Plaintiff had developed or worked on the original films,” writes Doyle.

“Alternatively, if the alleged general effect of the agreement is that Plaintiff is to be paid and credited for sequels which he developed or worked on, Plaintiff fails to allege that he developed or worked on the xXx sequel,” he added.

Recently, according to several reports, Diesel’s feud with Dwayne Johnson is considered a publicity stunt. Moreover, Fast 8 co-star Scott Eastwood, said he didn’t see any friction between them.
