Vin Diesel’s New Riddick Reveals Synopsis And Concept Art

14 December 2011 9:09 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Vin Diesel’s third outing as serial-killing anti-hero Richard B. Riddick is soon to begin shooting once again, after grinding to a halt over crew non-payment. Now we finally have news on where films the plot will take us, along with a concept image for a hound-like creature named The Jackal.

I have already written about how much I love director David Twohy’s original movie Pitch Black as well as disappointment with the overblown sequel The Chronicles Of Riddick. With that in mind I’m prepared to give Diesel and Twohy another shot with cool-as-hell character which is currently working under the current title of Riddick (which is damn sight better than the previous clunky moniker The Chronicles Of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking) .

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. »

‘Riddick 3′ Secures New Funding, Production to Resume

29 November 2011 5:30 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s been a long road for Vin Diesel’s Riddick 3. The third entry in the saga of the popular sci-fi character (who first appeared in the 2000 film Pitch Black, then again in his own 2004 solo venture, The Chronicles of Riddick) has had many starts and stops, the latest start being the actual start of production this past summer – the latest stop being a production halt this fall, when the production company, One Race Films, failed to pay its debt to the studio where Riddick 3 is being shot.

However, in a new update we’re hearing that Riddick 3 has secured new funding, and production will soon be back on track.

TMZ (which first reported on the production halt) has the exclusive on Riddick 3‘s resurrection. According to the outlet, Michel Trudel – ...

Riddick: production restarts as financial troubles get sorted

28 November 2011 10:56 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After being shut down over money troubles, the new film of Riddick is set to get back up and running next month. Vin Diesel is firmly on board.

After the interesting but flawed box office flop, The Chronicles Of Riddick, we figured we wouldn’t get to see Vin Diesel in that role again on the big screen. It was a surprise, then, that a new Riddick film went before the cameras in October.

Going under the name of Riddick, the movie stars Diesel, with Karl Urban returning, too. David Twohy is back calling the shots on the film.

However, not everything has been going smoothly. According to reports over at TMZ, the Riddick production was kicked out of the Montreal studio where shooting is taking place, after bills weren’t paid on time. That was at the end of October, and Michel Trudel, the owner of the aforementioned studio, »

‘Riddick’ Finds More Money, Production To Restart Soon

28 November 2011 4:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Nothing is coming easy to Vin Diesel and David Twohy when it comes to making another Riddick movie. After years of development [1] and teases, the star and writer/director finally began production [2] on the sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick a few months ago but had to stop in the middle [3] of shooting because they ran out of money. A new report says that problem has been solved, however. More money has been raised and filming will resume after Christmas. Read more after the jump. TMZ [4] (via Collider [5]) broke this news and states that Riddick was shooting in Montreal in late October when the cast and crew were locked out because the owner of the studio hadn't been paid. Now, however, those debts have been paid and production will reportedly restart on December 28. Running out of money isn't an uncommon occurrence for independently produced features. It just so happens that, »

“Riddick” Movie Back From The Dead

28 November 2011 2:37 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

TMZ reports that Vin Diesel’s new film The Chronicles Of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking is heading back for production after a financial faux pas that stopped the shoot dead in its tracks.

Last month production was halted when cast and crew was Locked Out of their studio. Owner of the Montreal studio Michel Trudel forced his hand, claiming that he had not been paid for use of his facilities. The film was dead in the water until very recently. Trudel says the production company has paid up and is willing to let production pick up where it left off.

This is one of many changes that will be made with the production, as word has it that several crew members are still waiting on their paychecks. Source say they won’t have to wait much longer.

Riddick Resumes Production December 28th

28 November 2011 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in October, actor Vin Diesel revealed Riddick was nearing the start of production, although the sequel was shut down weeks later because of cash flow issues. Now it seems all has been resolved, and Riddick will resume shooting on December 28.

Michel Trudel, who owns the Montreal studio where Riddick was shooting, booted the cast and crew off the set when Vin Diesel's production company, One Race Films, fell behind on payments to the studio. Now Michel Trudel says the production company has paid up, and he will allow the sequel to continue production. It isn't known if the production company took on a new financing partner for Riddick, or where the new funds came from.

David Twohy is directing Riddick from his own screenplay. Vin Diesel returns as the title character, and Karl Urban reprises his Vaako role from The Chronicles of Riddick. We reported last month that Katee Sackhoff, »

Riddick Secures New Financing and Resumes Production

28 November 2011 9:14 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Vin Diesel has been all too happy to share tidbits of information and concept art from the upcoming Riddick, but production on the sequel was halted when the production company ran out of money, and couldn't pay the owner of the Montreal studio where filming was underway.  However, TMZ [via CinemaBlend] is reporting  that the movie has secured new financing, paid off its debt, and that filming is set to resume on December 28th. As we previously reported, Riddick is trying to keep costs more along the lines of Pitch Black in order to maintain an R-rating and (hopefully) have an easier time of turning a profit.  2004's The Chronicles of Riddick flopping at the box office sent the franchise into stasis (although they were able to squeeze out the video game Assault on Dark Athena in 2009). Hopefully, the production won't have to worry about being shut down again. David Twohy's »

Third ‘Riddick’ Film Reportedly Lands Financing To Resume Production

28 November 2011 8:28 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The possibility of a third Riddick movie — reportedly titled The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking — has always been a rather tenuous one, though it did start to seem within the realms of possibility when Karl Urban joined the cast. That is, admittedly, not the biggest boost of confidence, but someone other than Vin Diesel and David Twohy putting their name on this thing is a good step. Heck, it’s actually sort of a first step, but you get the point.

Now, TMZ (via CinemaBlend) reports that “the production company” — which I’m guessing is either One Race Productions or Radar Films — has payed off any existing debts, thus making the Montreal studio in which production was underway open their doors once more to cast and crew. To my surprise, it’s said that some early shooting had already been going on before the production was shut down »

Diesel’s Riddick Return Back Up And Running

28 November 2011 2:05 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

For my money actor Vin Diesel has never bettered his role as serial-killing anti-hero Richard B. Riddick in the low-budget science-fiction sleeper hit Pitch Black (2000). A very bloated sequel entitled The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004), took away any impact or depth the role originated and set the character up as a loveable action hero battling evil in another universe. Wiping the slate of his mysterious and deadly past intentions, because Hollywood cant have you rooting for a serial killer, right!

After Diesel and writer/director David Twohy promised the character would go back to basics, I for one was excited to see Riddick’s return to the big-screen. However, even with Diesel reported to have taken a significant pay cut in order to star in the latest outing, filming and production was shut down last month after budget problems. It now appears those problems have now been resolved and that filming »

3 November 2011 1:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Andreas Apergis, and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista have all been offered roles in Riddick. It isn't known if they will accept the offers as of yet.

Katee Sackhoff has been offered the role of Dahl, a mercenary tracking Vin Diesel's title character, and Andreas Apergis was offered Krone, the commander of an evil theocracy.

David Twohy is directing Riddick from his own screenplay. Last month, Vin Diesel revealed shooting was slated to begin shortly, although this new report indicates production has been shut down for now.

Riddick 3 – Katee Sackhoff Hunts Vin Diesel?

Riddick 3 – Katee Sackhoff Hunts Vin Diesel?

It looks like there might be some new cannon fodder joining the cast of Riddick as Battlestar Galactica alumni Katee Sackhoff, along with a few others, are offered the opportunity to have their butts kicked by Vin Diesel.

It’s been seven years since bad boy Riddick graced the big screen with his presence in The Chronicles of Riddick (God, I feel old) but the chrome-dome with the freaky eyes is finally making his triumphant return to the theater, and the casting machine is hard at work with bringing in fresh meat to square off against everyone’s favorite anti-hero in Universal Pictures’ Riddick.

According to the peeps at Bloody Disgusting, Katee Sackhoff, who seems unable to catch a break since playing Starbuck on BSG, has been approached to play Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick. Considering the average lifespan of people that track Riddick, »

Casting Bits: Michael Caine in ‘Now You See Me;’ Olivia Wilde & Steve Buscemi in ‘Burt Wonderstone;’ Possible Choices for ‘Riddick’

1 November 2011 2:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Louis Leterrier's magician heist movie Now You See Me keeps getting better. The movie features a story about a group of illusionists who rob banks during their performances, and then give at least some of the proceeds out to the audience, even as the FBI is hot on their tail. The cast already includes Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, and now Michael Caine has signed on to play Arthur Tressler, the sponsor of the illusionists. The film will be released on January 18, 2013, and unless we see a trailer that looks simply horrible, Now You See Me will be high on our list of anticipated popcorn movies until that date arrives. [Moviehole [1]] After the break, Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi join the cast of another magician film, Burt Wonderstone, while Vin Diesel and David Twohy continue to try and perfect the »

The Chronicles of Riddick,” made in 2004, was a box-office failure, but somehow, the want for a sequel was there, at least for Vin Diesel, who played the title character. However for the people that were hoping for a sequel, that hope has all but dashed at the news released by TMZ Saturday. The site reported that the sequel for “Riddick” has been shut down momentarily due to money issues. Those issues come from Diesel’s production company, One Race Films.
