Yet another piece of concept art has been revealed for the highly anticipated third Riddick film. Vin Diesel happily agreed to return to the character that made him a star, and director of the first movie, David Twohy also returns. Twohy also directed the film which introduced Riddick, Pitch Black. Both have expressed how they intend to take on what fans have said about the ‘safe’ rating of the previous film, and are going all out for an 18 certificate with this latest film.
Diesel recently posted some information on the film on his Facebook page:
“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,” says Diesel on his Facebook page. “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!” He continues, “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.”
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick 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.
