Second Still Image of Vin Diesel in New Riddick Movie
02.05.12 by BJSprecher
Universal Pictures, Radar Pictures and One Race Films only just announced the start of principal photography on writer-director David Twohy's follow-up to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, but franchise star Vin Diesel has already revealed a second still image from Riddick via his his personal Facebook page — Diesel actually shared the first still image the day before the big announcement. How's that for being a "fan friendly" actor?
The third movie in the Riddick franchise goes back to the formula that made Pitch Black such a hit with the fans: R-rated action with Riddick (Diesel) stranded on a planet swarming with alien horrors. Karl Urban (Star Trek), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Jordi Mollà (Colombiana, Knight and Day), Matt Nable (Killer Elite) and Bokeem Woodbine (upcoming Total Recall remake) also star.
Here is the official synopsis of Riddick:
The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.
Riddick is currently in production in Canada. It does not yet have a release date.
