Flaming Dragon was secretly colluding with Les Grossman the whole time.
The prospect of their favorite movie star falling right into their laps meant that they were more than happy to cut a deal with Grossman. It was a win-win situation for both sides—if Speed wasn't rescued, he'd have to reenact Simple Jack for the rest of his life and Grossman got his insurance writeoff, but he made a daring escape, the movie made huge bucks, and Flaming Dragon got a cut under the table.
