Vin Diesel informed us on his Facebook page that Riddick 3 may b filming this Summer. Director David Twohy has approached Diesel about the project which means that it may be a go for its R rating that Diesel wanted.
Another interesting thing about the project is that Diesel will not be taking his normal fee for the film. So much for that myth that all Hollywood actors are pompous aholes! The character of Riddick was introduce to us in Pitch Black and then followed up by The Chronicles of Riddick. Here’s what Diesel had to say,
D T the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch… in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the “Find me Guilty” experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world)…
Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit… but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place… called Riddick.
Now, I need to hear from Our collective… you.
Wisdom and clarity appreciated.
So what do you guys think of the return of this badass character with a badass R rating??
