Vin Diesel Movie 'Had To Be Bailed Out'

Action star VIN DIESEL's new sci-fi movie BABYLON A.D. had to be rescued by a insurance company after running so far over-budget and behind schedule it faced being axed. Film Finances Inc, a firm which insures movies to ensure they will be completed, handed over $1.5 million (GBP750,000) to pay for additional filming in Paris and Prague, according to the New York Daily News. A spokesperson for the company confirmed it had paid out, but refused to reveal the amount. The unnamed source added that only "10 of 15 per cent" of the 250 films insured each year need to be bailed out. An insider claims the movie ran into trouble because of an ongoing battle between Diesel and French director Mathieu Kassowitz. The source tells the Daily News, "These guys really didn't get along. I think they wouldn't mind if they never saw each other again." But Diesel's representative Meredith O'Sullivan, insists, "The movie wrapped and everyone's really happy with it. Vin is not a diva."
