Grand Vizier Scores Again; AVN Story Confirms Sex Z Pictures-Eli Cross Lawsuit Scoop

This week The Grand Vizier, reporting from a Diabolic shoot, said that Bo Kenney and SexZ Pictures had a pending lawsuit against director Eli Cross when Cross was caught directing a movie for Adam & Eve, titled The 8th Day.

That story was confirmed Friday by AVN. The AVN story goes on to say that the project is Adam & Eve’s most expensive movie to date. Starring Kayden Kross who has her own set of legal woes due to an alleged real estate scam, the production was suspended this summer when Kenney became aware of Cross producing and allegedly co-directing the project.

Cross, a former editor-in-chief of AVN, had an exclusive contract with Kenney.

Kenney in his statements to AVN feels Cross and Adam & Eve and Cross have caused “irreparable harm” to SexZ Pictures by creating a conflict of interest and hurting SexZ Pictures ability to move forward with certain projects.

According to the AVN story, Adam & Eve resumed production on “The 8th Day” this week. And Ren Savant is now finishing the movie with producer David Lord for fall 2009 release.

Adam & Eve’s Bob Christian said the company suspended production when they became aware of Cross’ involvement.

According to the AVN story, Kenney said sources told him in July that in addition to producing, Cross may have had a hand in writing and directing The 8th Day. Adam & Eve is denies that claim. Kenney has since heard conflicting stories inlcuding Cross telling him Sevant had some problems and asked him to help out.

“I later found out Eli was the producer of the movie…. and Eli told me that yes, he had agreed to produce the movie. It’s an inconsistency.”

Adam & Eve production exec Meredith Christopher said Cross was brought in because the company had never done something like this before and that Cross assured her it was okay for him to b involved.

“I also have a signed contract from Eli stating that there was no conflict of interest,” she says.

Kenney, according to the story, proposed a settlement to Adam & Eve, but the studio has declined the offer. Kenney says if Cross wrote the script then that entitles him to an ownership interest in the project.

“I offered to make [The 8th Day] a co-production with SexZ Pictures, with a split percentage of the profits, but they refused.”

Christopher told AVN that any legal claims should be strictly between Kenney and Cross and not with Adam & Eve.

Kenney said his laywers are working on an approach to the situation, and expect to serve the defendants with papers within two weeks.
