Funny how Riddick has not yet been officially announced by the studio, yet we're getting a ton of updates from its writer-director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel.
The latest on the production comes from the latter who presented a storyboard from the film and wrote on his Facebook account:
While I was working on character, the Director and his team of artists have been creating the world and style of this picture. We all know how much I enjoy concept art and storyboards, haha, I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Seeing the early stage of CGI is always fascinating to me, it is a element that usually comes together long after the filming process, so you look forward to seeing it fully realized.
First stop for the Riddick production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles...
P.s. I am grateful to have Universal in such support of this complex character's journey... not many studios would back an "R" rating. Very cool.
Twohy was recently here in Los Angeles auditioning for a few roles, you can read about those parts right here.
A synopsis we received earlier for the third chapter in the Riddick series goes like this: 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.
