Vin Diesel Sued Over "xXx" Sequel

Vin Diesel

Actor Vin Diesel is working on Fast and Furious 8 at the moment, but there is a legal dispute over his other project, the follow-up to xXx.

According to The Wrap, George Zakk, a producer who worked with Diesel previously as part of his One Race Films production company, filed a lawsuit against the actor claiming he was owed $275,000. While he is no longer part of the company, Zakk is saying the xXx sequel was developed while he still worked there, and so as part of their contract is owed the fee as well as an Executive Producers credit.

The film isn't scheduled to release until January, so there is plenty of time to get this sorted out. Diesel has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
