It’s still early days on this one, in fact we don’t even have an official title yet, beyond “Riddick”, but the third movie in the series definitely seems to be on.
Vin Diesel himself has said the following on his Facebook page:
“I hear you…
While I was working on character, the Director and his team of artists have been creating the world and style of this picture. We all know how much I enjoy concept art and storyboards, haha, I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Seeing the early stage of CGI is always fascinating to me, it is a element that usually comes together long after the filming process, so you look forward to seeing it fully realized.
First stop for the Riddick production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles…
P.s. I am grateful to have Universal in such support of this complex character’s journey… not many studios would back an “R” rating. Very cool.”
Sounds like the real deal to me. That’s more or less all we have on it for now. Will keep you posted as more news starts to filter in.
