What's Riddick up to?


What the shit's going on with RIDDICK, the prequel to one of the cooler sci-fi flicks to come out in the past few years, you may ask? Well, after spending months shooting the film up in Canada, writer/director David Twohy was nice enough to drop me a line with the lowdown on this anticipated movie. Not much is known about the film other than the fact that it stars Vin Diesel, as well as Colm Feore, Judie Dench and Thandie Newton. Here's what the man himself told us that we can look forward to very soon:

  • This Wednesday at midnight, the old PITCH BLACK website (www.pitchblack.com) will be transformed into a dimensional portal that will take you on a fly-by of one (yes, just one, folks) of the worlds in the RIDDICK universe

  • On Monday/Tuesday the 15th/16th of December, the film's first trailer will hit Apple Trailers, followed shortly by its addition to the RETURN OF THE KING theatrical prints on the 17th. The trailer will provide a sneak look at some of the other worlds and characters from the film

  • Sometime in the spring, the official website will allow everyone to join in a bounty hunt for Richard B. Riddick himself through the site. The person who finds him first...is invited to the film's premiere in June. Sweet.

  • RIDDICK is set to be released on June 11, 2004

Sounds like a plan to me. I was a fan of the original film (read my review here), but even more so, of Vin Diesel and his character, who I thought ruled the f*ckin' screen. I think the idea of looking back into his past is brilliant and with all systems go, it looks like the film is set to be one of Universal's big summer centerpieces. Riddiiiiiiiiiiiickkkkk!!!
