Zane

Blamed for Bad 'Bloodrayne' Deal

4/30/2008 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy ZaneBilly Zane is being sued by director Uwe Boll for brokering a distribution deal that went south.

According to a lawsuit filed today, Zane put Boll's production company in touch with another company to handle the U.S. distribution of the movie "Bloodrayne." According to Boll's camp, the defendants claimed they could open the theater in at least 2,000 theaters -- but didn't.

The suit also claims that Zane took a $450,000 "finder's fee," which he wasn't authorized to do.

Boll is asking for unspecified damages. Calls to Zane's reps were not immediately returned.

Just watch: Gloria Allred is already out there scurrying to find someone who knows someone who knows someone involved with this case so she can hold a press conference saying she has a client who knows someone who knows someone.....

Billy Zane is extremely suave and charming. I love his voice and his singing. He is a throwback to a better, cooler, era in Hollywood. Billy, I hope your legal troubles clear up. Stay honest and keep your head up.

A judge will read the contract, find the holes, and hopefully justice will be served and Zane will have to resort to doing a penis flash to jump start his on screen career. ( FINGERS CROSSED)
