After a brief set back due to financial problems, Riddick is back in production.
It’s reported that the production company scrounged up enough cash to pay off some long overdue bills after coming to a screeching halt last month. It was reported that the guy who owns the Montreal studio where the film is being shot LOCKED OUT the cast and crew after complaining that he hadn’t gotten paid.
Studio owner Michel Trudel claims the production company recently paid up … and he’s willing to allow the flick to pick up where it left off.
Sources connected with the production explain that the studio payment is just one step in the right direction — noting that several members of the crew who had been griping about not receiving paychecks will indeed get their cash in the very near future.
Filming will resume today. Vin Diesel and Karl Urban both star.
