Personal Quotes (1)
On The Chronicles of Riddick (2004): "We did a lot of talking in this film about the Underverse, and one way of talking about it is the promised land -- that this leader of this new Necromonger faith has found. If you want to look at it more scientifically, scientists have this concept of multiverses -- multiple universes, y'know. The idea is that this 'verse they talk about, this Underverse, is a parallel universe, and the door to that, the portal to that place, has been found by the Lord Marshal. And he is the one guy who has stepped across, and gazed upon its beauty and its power, and taken a little bit of it back with him. So there's much to be plundered there."
