First Look at Vin Diesel in Riddick 3
01.21.12 by BJSprecher
Considering franchise actor Vin Diesel has been the source of news about the currently-in-production sequel to The Chronicles of Riddick (that's really a sequel to Pitch Black) — Diesel has used his personal Facebook page to reveal concept, storyboard and key frame art used in the making of the movie — it's no surprise that the first image of Diesel from the set of Riddick 3 (formerly The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking) should come from the actor himself. Diesel recently updated his Facebook account with an image of himself in costume as Riddick wearing the character's trademark goggles and at least part of the "Necro-armor" that he first teased back in October.
Riddick 3 (working title) was written and is being directed by David Twohy, who also directed the first two movies and had a hand in writing the first two movies and the 2004 made-for-DVD animated movie The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury. So far, the confirmed cast only includes Diesel and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), who will play Dahl, a Nordic mercenary on the hunt for Riddick. Jordi Mollà (Colombiana, Knight and Day) is in talks to play a "machete-wielding enforcer" named Santana, and the script includes Vaako, which could mean the return of Karl Urban. The movie does not yet have a release date.
