Fast & Furious franchise producer, Neal Moritz has sued the Universal Studios for breach of oral contract and promissory fraud over being sidelined for the spinoff led by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
“This case presents a classic example of Hollywood greed,” reads legal document filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court.
According to reports, Moritz, who is no stranger to litigation, wants to be reinstated as lead producer on Hobbs and Shaw, which just started shooting, or be paid out “tens of millions of dollars in damages in lost compensation” from the Comcast-owned studio.
No timeline has been set on how long this could take to get resolved one way or another, but Hobbs and Shaw is set to hit theaters on August 11, 2019.
