Back in October Bloody Disgusting exclusively reported that Katee Sackhoff (White Noise 2: The Light, Growl, The Haunting in Georgia) was in talks to star in Riddick for Universal Pictures and director David Twohy. Deadline confirms this evening that talks continue for her to play the female lead opposite Vin Diesel. The “Battlestar Galactica” alumna will play Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick (Diesel).
Variety adds that Spanish thesp Jordi Molla – who came close to nabbing the coveted villain role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 – is taking his sinister sneer to another sci-fi franchise, as he’s in negotiations to play the villain opposite Sackhoff in the untitled pic. He would play Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.
