Re: Riddick starting filming

Is this the Underverse film?

^no. from what I heard this will be a smaller, more personal story like Pitch Black.

Re: Riddick starting filming

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.

Wassup with Hannibal the Conqueror anyway? Movie, TV? Netflix doesn't list it at all - it'll be on DVD anyway, right?
No

It isn't due for release till next year. Still in special effects limbo, I'd guess.

Re: Riddick starting filming

"Dead Man Stalking" still touches upon Riddick's role as Lord Marshall of the Necromongers but then dives straight into a "Pitch Black" type story line. I'm really looking forward to this when it comes out.

Re: Riddick starting filming

This has me amped to check out the Director's Cut of Chronicles of Riddick... I enjoyed the theatrical release, but it seemed to suffer from editing issues, among other things. Loved Pitch Black, can't wait to see this new story!

Peace

Re: Riddick starting filming

The directors cut of 'Chronicles of Riddick' is indeed superior. It has a bit more open-ended ending as well... (although it does not contradict the theatrical ending - it is just ends on a different point)

Re: Riddick starting filming

Much like the "Daredevil" director's cut is superior to the original theatrical release. I agree the same thing with Chronicles

Re: Riddick starting filming

I'll be disappointed if there isn't enough of a follow-up to the end of The Chronicles of Riddick. That was one of those movies where I don't like the movie, but when I see where the ending leaves off, I'm like, "Sweet! That's the movie I wish I had been watching all this time!"

It would also be nice if they brought back Karl Urban & Thandie Newton as the Vaccos. Although, I suppose Judi Dench might be beyond their budget, unless Diesel was able to sweet talk her again.

Re: Riddick starting filming

I've already said too much of what is in the script anyways so we'll just have to wait until 2012 to see it.

Are you absolutely certain you know what's in the script?

Re: Riddick starting filming

I found Chronicles of Riddick to be surprisingly entertaining (being not much of a fan of Vin Diesel's work), so this is great news

Re: Riddick starting filming

"The Dead Man Stalking" script, I'm very sure since I read it several months ago.

I liked the first two movies, despite being profoundly different from each other. I'm looking forward to this.
