Vin Diesel appreciates his "Riddick" fanbase. And he's reminding them of that via his Facebook page where he showed off the below artwork, a concept piece from the forthcoming Riddick, directed by David Twohy. (I like that the concept art is called "The Final Stand of Riddick.") Here's what Diesel had to say.
Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to film. The road to the "R" rating, that so many of you were vocal about, has been a long one. The advantage however, (never empower the negatives) was that we were allowed a really extensive pre-production process. The art work is so good, the artists have really outdone themselves in illustrating this world at it's early stage.
When this film comes to the screen... know that you willed it into being!
I got two meetings today that I have been prepping for... one with the Director and another one with the head of the studio to discuss casting and the 2012 release date. Like always, I appreciate having your voice present in these meetings.
