Re: Riddick starting filming

Probably, but it wouldn't be as effective as the actual lenses i'd guess.

Apparently part of the reason he will have to work for scale is because the studio won't let them go for an R rating if they don't shed some of the budget, and they really want it to have an R rating as opposed to the PG-13 that the theatrical cut of Riddick got. I agree, obviously.

Yes indeedy. The reasons are all sound. They both sound as thought it's going to happen this summer, so fingers and toes crossed.

Re: Riddick starting filming

There's something about Vin's deadly-earnestness which make me giggle, I'm afraid. Never quite saw the appeal... I'll see it on TNT in a year or so.

I don't think I've ever seen Vin Diesel do "earnest." I don't think he can. No matter what the role, there's a sardonic, winking element to his performance. That's probably why I like him.

Re: Riddick starting filming

Maybe that's what it is, the smirk underneath the steel... I can see it as fun, but I know some folks take it more seriously than you do and I've never been able to see that. Chronicles is one of those movies with no need to listen to the dialogue as far as I'm concerned lol. The movie is just as enjoyable without having to listen to it.

Well Diesel's just posted on FB that he's working on Riddick's character, so I'm guessing filming is imminent.

Re: Riddick starting filming

Looking forward to it, I appreciated both previous films for what they were (that is, surprisingly good IMO).

Also, The Chronicles of Riddick had Keith David in it. I'll watch everything with Keith David. It's a Giant Bomb/Mass Effect thing.

Pitch Black is such an amazing movie. I'm going to have to check out Chronicles some day, maybe just in preparation for this movie. I hope this one does well. Vin Diesel's enthusiasm to keep this character is something you don't normally see in Hollywood.

Re: Riddick starting filming

Script details coming in and yes it does seem they're filming from the Dead Man Stalking script that I had a chance to read last year. This is exciting!

Re: Riddick starting filming

I love Riddick but let's be honest. The best part of Chronicle were the retreads of "Pitch Black" (Riddick must escape inescapable prison planet while fighting evil mercs). The whole underwearverse was pretty pointless and unnecessary.

Personally the movie can suck. I'm just glad the trilogy can be finished.
