So after taking forever to get the project started after numerous stalls and delays (such as getting locked out of the studio for not paying the rent) the anthropomorphic meat sack known as Vin Diesel is on the verge of wrapping up his third Riddick movie, creatively titled Riddick. On his official Facebook he released some details about the film.
“The studio said the earliest they could release the new Riddick is in January… was hoping for 2012… but, it’s on the horizon.
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.”
So Underverse and Furya are the next two? The studio wants to know how quick he can make them? Come on, give the man some time to let his creative juices flow, movies like that just don’t write themselves.
Riddick will see the titular character battling space mercenaries (led by Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff a possible high point for the movie) and alien predators on a desert planet. Wait, I guess they do write themselves.
If you are thinking I am being unnecessarily harsh on Mr. Diesel and his ham handed labour of love, I am. Pitch Black was alright and forgettable, Chronicles of Riddick was harsh and painful.
Just make the hurting stop.
