Now that we know a proper R-rated Riddick is on it’s way we can expect quite the rip-roaring film thanks to David Twohy and Vin Diesel. Being the good sports that they are, they’ve released the first image since their buddy cop photo reveal back in December. Now Vin has released a brand new photo to get the fans all “wet”.
Looking all buff and brooding like he always does, this image has surfaced onto the Internet in promotion of Riddick. Featuring a wet landscape and Vin, in his Riddick persona, on some kind of floating bike – minus the post CG after effects – really gives a tone of how the film will play out. And while we already know about Richard B. Riddick, how about some of the new blood to the “threequel”? Hit the jump for more.
Fans of the series were excited to learn that Starbuck herself, Kate Sackoff, was on board to play one of the then-unnamed bounty hunters after Riddick’s head. Honestly, no matter what Kate is doing in the film she’ll draw in a crowd and it’s always awesome to have her attached to such a fan driven franchise, but who is she in all of this, really?
While promoting her role in The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, Sackoff spoke with iamRogue on the character we’ll all come to know as Dahl:
With the new teaser image and Kate giving fans an idea of who she’ll play, Riddick is shaping up to be quite the Hollywood feature. Riddick is set to be released in theaters September 6th, 2013.
