- RIDDICK ON FACEBOOK
So once again we had to find out the latest news from a Vin Diesel movie, through him talking too his fans through the Social Network site, Facebook!! The actor revealed that the latest Riddick film will be R-rated and the type of art work they have been working on. Well don’t listen to us here is what he had to say:
|Riddick Concept Art|
“I hear you...
While I was working on character, the Director and his team of artists have been creating the world and style of this picture. We all know how much I enjoy concept art and storyboards, haha, I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Seeing the early stage of CGI is always fascinating to me, it is a element that usually comes together long after the filming process, so you look forward to seeing it fully realized.
First stop for the Riddick production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles...
P.s. I am grateful to have Universal in such support of this complex character's journey... not many studios would back an "R" rating. Very cool.”
Back in May, Diesel had said that he would have to work for scale upfront if the film was to carry an R rating:
Filming is expected to start soon. Here's a synopsis for Riddick:
"Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction."
