It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from the planet of Riddick, which had me wondering if the sequel was ever going to happen. This morning there’s some fresh news courtesy of star Vin Diesel and director David Twohy who posted the inside video on Facebook talking about The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.
“The movie itself is gonna be a lot like ‘Pitch Black’ because of the money involved,” says Twohy speaking of keeping the budget low. “We want to maintain our R-rating at any cost, and it’s cost us a lot.”
[The R-rating] “is a big deal,” Diesel adds. “We’re committed to going R.”
The only way to do a new Riddick film is to make it for genre fans, and that means do it right — with extra blood! Watch the entire video inside.
“Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) 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.”
