- RIDDICK 3 ALMOST THERE!!!
Director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel have been trying to get a third Riddick movie made since before the second one was even done. And now, according to the helmer, they are "closer than ever" to making that happen.
Twohy posted the following on his official site:
|Concept Art for Riddick (The Apocalypse)|
"The finish line (actually a starting line) seems closer than ever. Of course, there are no guarantees in this mad endeavor called 'filmmaking,' a pursuit that is a pricey shotgun marriage between business and art. But we've reached a critical mass of enthusiasm and resource needed to launch a movie. If we go now, we can make it now. If we don't, we may never. And trust me, we're all keenly aware of that."
He goes on to say that, yes, he has had some "good face-time" with Diesel, and that it's "Vin and the concessions he chooses to make that will allow this movie to go forward. And his love of the character, of course. So if you, too, have a soft spot for this hardened criminal, you might want to weigh in over at that giant-ass Facebook page he's got."
This seems to be a reference to Diesel's recent statement that, in order to get the film done, he must work for scale upfront. Can you do it, Vin, especially in the wake of your big Fast Five success?
