As he’s wont to do, Vin Diesel has released a new pic from his upcoming “Riddick” movie via his Facebook page. He also mentions that the movie is currently in post, which is surprisingly fast. One day this movie was getting made, then it was getting made, and now it’s already in post? Wow. The third film in the “Pitch Black” franchise finds Diesel’s character on the run from dangerous mercs once more. So what else is new? David Twohy, who wrote and directed the previous two movies in the series and co-created the character with Diesel, returns once again as the man with the plan. Writes the Diesel: A still from the RIddick set this year… we are in post and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see it manifest. You all were such a part of it becoming a reality… willed it into being, so to speak… P.s. Filming Fast this summer is going to… Continue Reading »
Keeping an eye on Vin Diesel’s Facebook account is always a good idea if you’re into the man’s brand of sci-fi/action mayhem. The Diesel is currently knee deep in production on “Riddick”, the third film in his and writer/director David Twohy’s “Pitch Black” franchise. In a new Facebook post, Vin Diesel hints at more adventures of Riddick while discussing the film’s potential release date. The studio said the earliest they could release the new “Riddick” is in January… was hoping for 2012… but, it’s on the horizon. /smile P.s. I think they are liking what they are seeing… haha, cause they asked when both Underverse and Furya would be ready to make and release… haha… now that’s a ways in the future but it is exciting. Ugh. Underverse. That would mean going back to the whole “Chronicles of Riddick” thing. I thought we were moving away from that clunky nonsense? Isn’t that the whole point of “Riddick”? Going back to… Continue Reading »
Jonsin’ for some more goddies from the “Riddick” set? All you needed to do was ask. Here are more images from the in-production film courtesy of its star Vin Diesel, including your first look at Katee Sackhoff as a merc name Dahl, wrestler Dave Bautista as another merc, and writer/director David Twohy doing his job, which is directing Vin Diesel. But as we all know, you don’t actually direct Diesel, you just how to tell him where to stand. Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction. Also starring Karl… Continue Reading »
Official press release below. Universal Pictures, One Race Films and Radar Pictures announced today that principal photography has begun on the action-driven, sci-fi thriller Riddick. The shoot will take place in Montreal. The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000′s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004′s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive… Continue Reading »
“Riddick” is still happening. Just in case you were curious. To ensure you that it is happening, the franchise’s star Vin Diesel has been posting set images from the movie’s Canada set pretty regularly. About once a week or thereabouts. Here’s the latest pic. Writes Vin Diesel over at his Facebook page, where this new pic from the set of “Riddick” was posted: Being king has it’s perks… yet an alpha Furyan, must return to his primitive state… that animal side. He adds: (low rumble) GRRRRR… P.s. An early pic from the set of the new Riddick film. I bet that “GRRRRR” gets the girls all wobbly. (And, um, some of you boys out there.)
Yup, after a lot of start and stop, and start again, it appears David Twohy and Vin Diesel’s “Riddick” is actually, honest to goodness, getting made. Go figure. I know the film has been casting for a while (Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, that Funk kid), but I gotta tell you, I wasn’t still sure it would actually happen. I mean, the film has so much potential to be badass, I just naturally assumed Hollywood would find a way to kill it. Cause, you know, that’s what Hollywood does. But nope, it’s actually happening, and here’s your first look at Vin Diesel from the “Riddick” set, all dressed up in his Necromonger costume and ready to shank someone in the throat. Oh, Riddick, you’re so irrepressible. The plot? Oh, it has Riddick being “betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever… Continue Reading »
Yeah, I don’t now who the dude is, either. Here’s what Variety says: Nolan Funk is set to star alongside Vin Diesel in the next installment of the “Riddick” franchise. Funk can be seen next in the Bold Films pic “Evidence” and just wrapped the co-lead role in the ABC Family pilot “Intercept.” I guess they don’t know who the dude is, either, or what he’s playing in the movie “Riddick”. We do know that David Twohy wrote the script and will direct, and Vin Diesel, of course, will star. Katee Sackhoff and Jordi Molla were also recently added to the cast. So who is this Funk guy? According to IMDB.com, he’s been in “Warehouse 13″, which is where some genre fans may know him. I don’t recall him, but apparently he had a recurring role as Claudia’s one-time boyfriend. Nope. Still don’t recall. He looks like a dork in the pic above, but he’s apparently quite the gym rat… Continue Reading »
Variety and Deadline are reporting that both Katee Sackhoff and Jordi Molla are now officially in talks to play mercenaries tracking down everyone’s favorite space fugitive with a bad attitude in “Riddick”, the third movie in the “Pitch Black” franchise from star Vin Diesel and writer/director David Twohy. “Battlestar Galactica’s” Sackhoff will play a character name Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick, while “Colombiana’s” Molla will play Santana, the mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew charged with finding our hero. “Riddick 3″ is supposed to take the franchise back to its “Pitch Black” roots, with less of those Underverse nonsense and more of tough guys facing off with Riddick on a planet and people stabbing each other with sharp instruments in the dark. Yay!
