With more awesome
Vin Diesel wants us to see another Riddick film. I’m with the man. For the problems that the second film had, Pitch Black is still a high standard on atmospheric monster films. It also put Diesel on the map as a bad ass. Who could forget Riddick throwing down with the space raptor and kicking it’s ass? I didn’t', and neither did Vin. Hence this awesome production art that he got from director David Twohy that gives us the feeling that this film is going to be more Pitch Black than Chronicles of Riddick.
From the man himself:
“In the spirit of Creative Sundays… I asked the director to send a key frame that I could post it for you.
Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to film. 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 preproduction process. 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!
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. Like always, I appreciate having your voice present in these meetings.
You’d think that with Fast Five being the mega hit it was, that they would at least green lite a film that’s aiming to be half the budget of Fast Five. Vin keeps saying that Riddick is close to go, so I’ll take the man’s word for it.
