Riddick starting filming

Vin Diesel has announced on Facebook that filming will be starting soon. He's mentioned Riddick's home planet quite a few times (can't remember if it's Fury or Furyan) so that could be a hint.

Awesome!!!

Chronicles of Riddick is very underrated, I found it to be a highly imaginative film, that was paced much better in it's directors cut.

Re: Riddick starting filming

Great news...have wanted a continuation of the franchise since the end of "Chronicles of Riddick". I wonder what version of the script that they decided to go with since there were two of them, the one I read was fantastic.

For real?

I like Vin Diesel and it's time to have a real badass again in the movies.

Definitely looking forward to it.

He had to get Fast & Furious and Hannibal the Conqueror out of the way first. According to his musings, the script was agreed last year but after a very dry spell, his dance card was suddenly full, so this was third in line.

Re: Riddick starting filming

I'm hoping they picked the Dead Man Stalking script...it takes place several months after Chronicles ends and sets up the rest of the movie.

I didn't really care for Pitch Black, so I gave Chronicles of Riddick a pass. I may have to re-consider.

They are nothing alike.

Re: Riddick starting filming

Not even close and "Riddick" is more akin to "Pitch Black" than "Chronicles".

Nice. For anyone who was a fan of these films, I highly recommend checking out the "Escape from Butcher Bay" and "Assault on Dark Athena" games, which are very well made (starring Vin) and add a lot to the Riddickverse.

I'm weird, I like Chronicles of Riddick and I've been wanting to see more.

Wassup with Hannibal the Conqueror anyway? Movie, TV? Netflix doesn't list it at all - it'll be on DVD anyway, right?

Riddick is a Furyan from Furia. Furry is right out.

Wasn't Furry populated with Tribbles? ;-)

Looking forward to more Riddick...
