Riddick Featurette Previews Diesel's Latest Sci-Fi Movie
On September 4th, Vin Diesel's 'Riddick' will hit movie theaters, but for a long time, the film looked like it would never come to fruition. Previous entries into the Riddick franchise had the power of Universal Studios behind them, but if Diesel was going to get another entry created, he would be doing it without the backing of a studio. Taking up the role of Producer, Riddick set about to work with David Twohy, the man who wrote and directed both Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick.
Diesel has always maintained that this film would be for the fans. Indeed, it was the fans from the first two films that convinced him that a 3rd installment was necessary. As such, Riddick will be an R-rated film, something that fans insisted on after 'Chronicles' was created as a PG-13 piece. The film will see Riddick stranded on a deadly predator-filled planet. His only hope of surviving is to draw the attention of a deadly pack of bounty hunters who quickly descend upon the planet for their chance of collecting the most prized scalp in the galaxy.
Now, in a new featurette, you can hear what Diesel and Twohy wanted to achieve with this 3rd installment. You'll also get a first glimpse of the perilous world they have created for the showdown between Riddick, the bounty hunters and a fearsome swarm of predators.
