Twohy wrote two scripts, but they're probably going with the Dead Man Stalking
concept to bring events back to a smaller scale. I doubt the film will spend any considerable amount of time, if any at all, in the Underverse, since that would likely require a larger budget than Twohy and Diesel are trying for. I really liked both Pitch Black
and The Chronicles of Riddick
(as well as Escape from Butcher Bay
, though I haven't played Assault on Dark Athena
), so I'm looking forward to this, although I am disappointed Chronicles
didn't do better financially in order to warrant a large-scale sequel. That's a universe that I'd love to see explored a lot more.
