Vin Diesel Sued, Again, Over ‘xXx’ Sequel

Man seeks at least $2 million in latest legal shot at actor

George Zakk is doubling down on his legal actions against Vin Diesel over the film “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.”

Zakk, who sued the actor in 2016 claiming to be owed money from the 2017 film, has once again filed a complaint against the actor, this time asking for at least $2 million.

In the latest suit, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Zakk says that he was “instrumental in creating, developing and bringing to fruition” the original “xXx” film, released in 2002, and had an agreement in which he was entitled to at least $200,000 in compensation and an executive producer credit for the sequel.

However, the suit states, defendants have refused to pony up on their promise.

Zakk’s initial suit was dismissed in May, after a judge decided that Zakk hadn’t provided more details to support his claims.

TheWrap has reached out to Diesel’s spokesman for comment on the latest lawsuit, which breach of oral contract, among other counts.
