RIDDICK Sequel Details Via A New Press Release!!

Merrick here...

Over the past few weeks we've seen several images of Vin Diesel on-set in character attire for his new RIDDICK movie - an R-rated follow-up to PITCH BLACK and CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, helmed by  returning writer/director David Twohy.  

I kinda figured those shots woulda been a fair indicator that they were, you know,  making a RIDDICK movie.  But, evidently, Universal wants to make the start of production all official like, and have done so via a new press release.  And I'm glad that they did, because this release confirms the return of Karl Urban (who played Vakko in the second movie), and gives us a fun sense what to expect this time around in terms of plot and characters.  

There's nothing too spoilery herein, but I've highlighted the plot description in red to flag it for those who want to avoid any details whatsoever.  

Here's the release: 

------------------

 

Universal Pictures, One Race Films and Radar Pictures announced today that principal photography has begun on the action-driven, sci-fi thriller Riddick. The shoot will take place in Montreal.

The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

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.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy.


Riddick also sees the return of Karl Urban (Star Trek, The Bourne Supremacy) as Vaako and introduces to the series Jordi Molla (Bad Boys II, Colombiana) as Santana, the arrogant captain of the mercenary ship; Matt Nable (Killer Elite) as Boss Johns, a man looking for answers; Katee Sackhoff (TV's Battlestar Galactica) as the Nordic mercenary Dahl; and Bokeem Woodbine (upcoming Total Recall) as bounty hunter Moss. Rounding out the cast are Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), Conrad Pla (Immortals), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Nolan Funk (TV's Aliens in America) and two-time Grammy Award-nominated singer Keri Hilson.

The film is produced by Vin Diesel (upcoming Fast & Furious 6, Fast Five) and executive produced by Samantha Vincent (Fast Five, Fast & Furious) for One Race Films. Ted Field (The Last Samurai, Pitch Black) produces for Radar Pictures, while Mike Drake (Dream House, A Nightmare on Elm Street) also executive produces.

Twohy is joined on the film by a talented behind-the-scenes team, including director of photography David Eggby (Pitch Black, Mad Max), production designer Joseph Nemec III (A Perfect Getaway, The Hills Have Eyes, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and editor Tracy Hall (Limitless, A Perfect Getaway, The Flock).

The Riddick franchise has also produced two popular video games: The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena and The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. As well, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has released the anime DVD The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury.

Riddick, which is shooting in Montreal, Canada, is a One Race Films production. The film will be released by Universal Pictures in the U.S., and Lionsgate is handling international sales.

    I'm so tired of desert planets. Tatooine. Nimbus III. Arrakis.

  • in both Riddick and the Fast and Furious movies...stick with these franchises for the forseeable future Vin and you might reclaim some of your box office and Hollywood mojo

    Damn, what a waste. Total rehash.

    by jimmy_009

    Why ditch the ending of the second one? It was a great lead-in to the third. Instead just take plot points from the first two movies and rehash. Disappointing.

    by zinc_chameleon

    Oops...what works is that Riddick is being hunted by a superior force, and he will lose. His only alternative is to alert his enemies to his whereabouts, and hope that the two clashing parties destroy each other. Simple, classic, and full of possibilities of twists and turns. Good work Vin.

    I could rattle on but why I am going to go see it anyway.

    by skiff

    I just hope its good so they can keep on making them. I will say my favourite part of starwars was the falcon. Seeing it wiz around asteroids battle cruisers and the big barrel rolls made me cum in my pants when I was a kid.I have watched those shots thousands of times I am still not sick of them. Funny thats the part lucas left out of the prequels. Only 2 things in my life ever gave me that feeling 1 the space ships skidding around space in the OT 2 Eddie van halen's guitar playing. Now if they could put some of that In riddick I'll see it 20 times.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 12:11 p.m. CST

    I want to see more of the universe of riddick.

    by wonderboy2402

    I actually liked the planets the films happened on... Desert planet, icy fields planet, and the half fire / half frozen solid with the little bit in between survivable ... was clever. That and the character riddick with the mercenary/enterprising groups made it interesting.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 12:12 p.m. CST

    So the best Diesel can do is rip off his last movie's plot line and remake it?

    by The_Maltese_Vulcan

    New world record for remakes.

    Best part of Riddick was Urban....

    Cause clearly he felt his career was rapidly coming to an end wearing that dreadful armor and spewing horrible lines that ended Newton's career. But why is he returning to tempt fate?

    by goatboy500

    but i fuckin loved Chronicles. Conan in space. awesome. Just run, don't wak from the director's cut, it's fuckin terrible. I was hoping the merc with a 'personal' reason for tracking Riddick would be Nick Chinlund's character from chronicles, but it's clearly John's brother/father whatever. Oh well, lookin forward to it nonetheless.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 12:36 p.m. CST

    Chronicles was fucking rad. And, Arrakis is THE only desert planet.

    TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMBBBBBBSSSS!!!!

    by El Cimarron

    Toombs needs to come back point blank period. Every single Riddick news I see I post the same thing. Why? Cuz it was the only character who actually played off Riddick properly. Glad to see Vakko is back, but too serious and not too menacing. One thing about the plot description... Why leave Riddick in a desert planet to die when, you know, you can just kill him? I'm sure the fact he's the new Lord Marshall will play into that somehow though... In conclusion, more Toombs please.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 12:57 p.m. CST

    Excellent!

    by Horned One

    The first two movies were great, and this one sounds like it will deliver as well. Can't wait!

    Nice to see the franchise still going...

    by bubcus

    I rewatched Pitch Black last week. I like his character and would like to see him expanded upon. The plot sounds okay to me.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 1:25 p.m. CST

    I REALLY hope this movie KILLS at the Box Office...

    by LargoJr

    ... a good performance might influence Studio Execs and Penny-Pinchers to pull their fat heads out of their pustulated assholes and realize everything DOESN'T need to be PG to make money. All PG-13 has ever done was fuck up the potential for movies fans wanted, but ended up not getting.

  • They even use that word in the press release, for Pete's sake. Can't recall the last time a sequel to a terrible film, with a synopsis lifted from an even more terrible film (with both films being the third in their respective series) turned out well. I loved 'Pitch Black'. Unless this film surprises us all, this looks like a 'Matrix'-like collapse into sequel disaster.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 1:30 p.m. CST

    I have to agree that the DC of Riddick is not good.

    by HoboCode

    All that furyian crap was lame as shit.

    hobocode, yeah

    by Mattman

    I liked it better when he was just a murderous badass who had his eyes worked on. Didn't need some huge mythology behind his character. The less you know about characters like Riddick, the better.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 1:51 p.m. CST

    Yawn

    by truedog67

  • Also because the dude is a serious genre fan and really means well, despite some missteps with Chronicles. At least the games were good? I try not to dispense hate on Hollywood people who have good intentions and like the shit I like. Call me crazy.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 1:58 p.m. CST

    THAT SYNOPSIS SUCKS!!

    by ThisBethesdaSea

    There's no way I'll be seeing that shit. If Vin Diesel could actually do more then spew one-liners while mid-action then maybe I'd give it a whirl. I'm a fan of serious science fiction, and not action vehicles set in space. OPT. OUT.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 2:31 p.m. CST

    Synopsis of the script makes sense,

    by yamayama

    Since the Necromongers cant kill Riddick and become chief, they dump him on a hellhole in the hope someone does it for them. Also it brings the character back to its strengths too. But.... Diesel is missing a trick with the wider underverse of Riddick though. There is a very good TV series waiting to be made of out of that world, with the necromongers and the elementals at its core.

  • Vin still gets the benefit of the doubt for championing more RIDDICK films/games. I can't imagine this is the most profitable career move he could make, and it seems clear that his heart is truly in this - moreso than the family-friendly crap that he could do if he were just cashing a paycheck. I also respect that he appears to be trying to make sci-fi for adults rather than dilute his vision for studio execs. It remains to be seen whether the budget can let him accomplish his vision, but I'm optimistic. What I like less is the synopsis - it really does seem like we saw this in the previous films. If it's done better and has a tight focus, though, I won't be complaining. Maybe it's just not a well-written synopsis, I don't know. Bottom line - I'd rather see Vin swing for the fences with a brutal new RIDDICK film than slum around in a dozen kiddie comedies.

    He was the best character from the last one. And I like that Riddick would have a scumbag nemesis in him that could also prove to be an adversary given proper circumstances.

    I *PREFER* the second movie...

    by CoolFrood

    ... and would rather see the third movie continue that storyline.

  • The first is a tight, perfect paced sci-fi romp and Riddick has real menace, the second is desperately trying to be an epic, but the characters and ideas are so silly (seriously, the Underverse?) and the pace such a mess, only a fool would find Chronicles a better film.. Ok it gets it's shit together toward the end, but we have to endure all kinds of fine actors in silly costumes delivering gibberish for most of it.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Katee Sackhoff!!! NICE!

    by ShiftyEyedDog

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 4:06 p.m. CST

    So much dislike for this series

    by christpunchers2007

    Especially Chronicles, which I found to very enjoyable. I think Escape from Butcher Bay really sweetened these movies for me; I played the PC game before even watching either movies and made me only more curious about the universe. At the very least, Riddick is more or less an original IP, borrowing a few elements from other franchises while molding a character just for Vin. I'd much rather encourage projects like these, even if they end up being mediocre, rather than Transformer 7 or remakes like the upcoming Total Recall.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 4:22 p.m. CST

    What Vin really needs to do is get back to XXX.

    I hope this isn't Highlander 3

    by Ivan_Mtl

    I really enjoyed both Pitch Black, and Chronicles of Riddick. The first movie was a great monster-in-the-dark movie (literally), and the second was just epic science-fiction in the tradition of Dune. I love the fact that both films are completely different much like the Mad Max and first three Alien movies. I would love to see David Twohy continue to explore and expand Riddick's universe. Unfortunately, I'm a little worried that the filmmakers are going to pull a Highlander 3, completely ignoring the second movie, and play it safe. The synopsis sounds suspiciously like a rehash of the first movie with the bounty hunter elements of the second thrown in for good measure. I hope that I'm wrong because I would love to see more Riddick movies in the future that introduce wonderful new ideas and concepts to the franchise.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 5:04 p.m. CST

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 6:18 p.m. CST

    Mostly in the right direction

    by Lummox JR

    Sounds like this could be a return to form, rather than the tangled mess of stupid goth fantasy BS we saw in Chronicles. Riddick fighting off a million different antagonists who want him dead makes for a whole lot better concept. On the other hand, the return of Karl Urban's character kind of puts a black mark on it, because it forces us to acknowledge the second film.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 6:43 p.m. CST

    That anyone can think they're ignoring Chronicles of Riddick

    by ShadowVoyd

    Is a sign that motherfuckers need some remedial reading classes. The Necros, for reasons which I'm sure'll be disclosed in the film, dump Riddick on "Oh look, it's a scorched planet meaning hot fiery death for our hero!" No.124. So it's post Lord Marshal Riddick back in classic Riddick setting imploding both bounty hunter and Necro asses with a boot.<P> Best of both worlds, really. Original? Well... no, but I don't think they're going that route as opposed to appealing to those who liked "classic" Riddick and want to revisit that kind of ride and those who don't know enough about it to know there's a rehash happening anyway (so they'll enjoy the ride regardless). <P> The potential for a Keri Hilson/Katee Sackhoff only sweetens the pot.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 7:19 p.m. CST

    by Mattman

    Not a huge fan of Chronicles (although I looove the prison planet sequence), but Butcher Bay and Pitch Black are fantastic. My problem with Chronicles is it tried to be Star Wars/Dune, and I think the Riddick character works best with a small story, where he can take charge. The universe of Butcher Bay and Pitch Black feels like a real place that could exist someday in the future... but Chronicles takes me out of that with too much whimsy.

  • Feb. 3, 2012, 8:52 p.m. CST

    The more "Pitch Black", the better...

    by Tristan

    Of course they're going to tell us what happened with Riddick being the Necromonga ruler, but having creatures AND mercs going after him...sounds badass. I didn't like Chronicles, as much as Pitch Black, because they tried to make things "epic" and the whole Necromonga shit was silly. A dark, violent, and low-budget sequel is what shouldve followed Pitch Black and now, we are getting it. They shouldve brought Tombs back though...

    Will this mean a new Riddick game?

    by Ben_Richards_Bomb_Collar

    Escape from Butcher Bay is one of my favorite games ever. Anyways, I like the Riddick films/universe. Chronicles was cheesy, but decent sci-fi. If the sequel is similar or better quality, I'm good.

  • Feb. 4, 2012, 1:22 a.m. CST

    There's no way for them to ignore the second film

    by christpunchers2007

    Riddick has no desire to lead the Necros, and most likely Karl Urban sets a trap for Riddick, successfully ousting him of being a worthy leader.

    You really have to read Alan Dean Foster's novel based on

    by haterscrote

    David Twohy's original screenplay for The Chronicles of Riddick to really appreciate what Twohy was trying to do with the the second movie. http://amzn.to/xGxBN8 For whatever reason, budget, time... etc, a lot of character development, not to mention the original awesome opening sequence as well as a few other major set pieces, were not in either cut of the film. Making the final product watchable but a shadow of it's former self. I still prefer Chronicles over Pitch Black. Hope they do make another Riddick game. Escape from Butcher Bay really fleshes out the world of Riddick. Dark Athena wasn't bad either.

    Riddick's on a God forsaken planet hunted by creatures. At least the second one went in a different direction. I guess he didn't go into the underworld to find the girl.

    Listen, you whiney crack-babies...

    The reason why the synopsis is more similar to Pitch Black is PRECISELY BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THE MAJORITY OF FANS FUCKING WANTED. People, I should say, the majority, loved Pitch Black and loathed Chronicles. Vin and director Twohy pay close attention to the feedback they get from their facebook pages - they actually LISTEN to what people are telling them, unlike most of hollywood. The result? A film that echoes Pitch Black - why? Because, again, that's what people fucking asked for. And that is the environment that Riddick is best suited for. Nobody gives a shit about him fighting some retards in Necromancer gear - they want to see him be a bad-ass with those eyes of his in the dark, going one-on-one with alien beasties while everyone around him gets picked off. If you don't like that, you probably didn't get it in the first place. It's an animal thing. ;)

    They're right to not enter the Underverse

    if I'm interpreting this correctly, but I'd hate to see this become another retread of Pitch Black. We've already seen that. Let's see this as a whole new chapter with some dovetailing of the last movie, eh?
