“One of many Necro-armor designs,” says the star who returns as the title character, “I am excited about the work our ‘Riddick’ crew of artists are doing right now in Canada. ‘Riddick’ starts principal photography in weeks… much to do, much to do… especially since it’s “R”…”
Bloody Disgusting reported a few weeks ago that Karl Urban will reprise his role of “Vaako,” one of Lord Marshal’s (Colm Feore) commanders that’s married to Thandies Newton’s character, “Dame Vaako”. Urban starred in Thowy’s 2004 The Chronicles of Riddick. He will join franchise star Vin Diesel, who plays the title character.
In the R-rated sequel “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.”
