Vin Diesel has taken to Facebook again for another update on Riddick. Personally, I’m sure you guys would like to see some pics that give us a sense of scope on the project. Not just picture after picture of the character. But I could be wrong.
Per the thesp, “First time I posted about Riddick was back in 2009, Facebook was fresh… They were asking me to come to the headquarters to talk about this new concept of communicating with fans. I was proud to lead that wave, yet all I was doing, was opening up about my passion – film. So this picture of our 2012 production of ‘Riddick, is a cool victory for all of us… it shows that studios can be influenced by your voice.”
Katee Sackoff, Jordi Molla and Nolan Funk all star in the second sequel to Pitch Black that’s in production under the command of franchise director David Twohy.
“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.”

With Riddick back in production some steady news is starting to emerge from the set. David Twohy is currently directing the Vin Diesel starrer which recently resumed production after taking a two-month hiatus to deal with production cost issues.
Most recently Vin posted a pic of himself in character on his Facebook page, most likely giving the unit publicist a heart attack.
With the Fast And The Furious franchise at a commercial peak, it looks like Diesel is able to get passion projects off the ground. This includes big budget sequels to films that didn’t do that great at the box office to begin with.
We know that Katee Sackhoff plays Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick. We also know that Jordi Malla plays Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick. Nolan Funk‘s role remains a mystery.

I always forget that Riddick is actually happening. But it is! David Twohy is currently directing the Vin Diesel starrer which recently resumed production after taking a two-month hiatus to deal with production cost issues.
Who is Nolan Funk? Per Variety he’s a fellow who “can be seen next in the Bold Films pic ‘Evidence’ and just wrapped the co-lead role in the ABC Family pilot “Intercept.” ”
Why is he in Riddick? I have no idea. Neither does Variety it seems. We know that Katee Sackhoff plays Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick. We also know that Jordi Malla plays Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.
Maybe Funk is another guy tracking down Riddick? Or perhaps he’s an intergalactic anime karaoke star? Because he’s kind of got that Robotech pop star thing going on in the pic below. READ MORE
There is no doubt that the Cry Baby wah wah pedal is probably the most influential pedal of all time. It’s been used by the biggest musicians since it’s existence and continues to be the number one top selling pedal, for good reason. I love my Cry Baby and will always make sure to have one, no matter what style of music I’m playing.
So, naturally, a documentary was filmed to discuss the importance and impact of this pedal. Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World, which you can watch below, tells the story of this pedal, featuring interviews with Slash, Kirk Hammett, Steve Lukather, Jerry Cantrell, Eddie Kramer, and more. Keep in mind that this is just under an hour, so sit back to expand your knowledge!
