Diesel Riddick sequels

08.12.2009

Today in the Dieselverse, Vin Diesel posted some tidbits on the CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK sequels on his Facebook wall.

So if you were a fan of the first, the Diesel has some news for you, "Though Hollywood likes their PG Ratings, the next chapter in the COR series was always envisioned as an R rating, like PITCH BLACK. One Studio exec suggested doing both “The Underverse” and “The Furyan”, (working titles) at the same time, allowing us an R rating for the first and a PG rating for the second. The good news- David Twohy’s script comes in next month."

I didn't see COR because I'm sure there was something better out at the time, but I know it does have a following. What's up with the PG for the third film though? Doesn't that seem a little odd? You do this hardcore action flick only to follow it up with a little parental guidance. Maybe they have this mind blowing plan of awesomeness to turn their PG Riddick into gold.

Really the only thing that I'm looking forward to from David Twohy is THE BRAZILIAN JOB. I'm not really huge fan of his writing, but I loved THE ITALIAN JOB so I'll go see Brazilian no matter who writes it. Fifteen minutes of Riddick on break at school was all I needed to decide it wasn't my cup of tea.

But if you love Diesel, ask him why their making the third PG. Then let me know, I'll alert the Dieselverse.

COR is a movie that will forever be tainted, in the general public's eyes, because of the theatrical cut of the film. The director's cut was gold and I sure hope they use it as the basis for the next one but the theatrical cut was a complete mess and was missing a lot of the fundamentals. If you haven't seen it watch the director's cut.

Okay, with one condition

I want Karl Urban back in the sequel, greased up in a speedo for a long wrestling match with Vinnie in a jock strap. If they'd had that scene in the orignal it would have been a major blockbuster.

Loved COR

Despite all the negative things said about COR, I loved it and it is still the only film I have watched twice in a row. Yes that's right, i watched it once, then went straight back in the cinema and watched it again :)

Agree with Film Fan

Loved Pitch Black but slightly disappointed by Chronicles, except for Alexa and Thandie of course! I hope they go crazy in the 3rd one.

Hurm...

Pitch Black is a killer flick, however I thought COR was slightly lacking in some areas. Either the next film in line will be even worse or it will blow them all out of the water. We'll just have to wait and see I suppose...

This is probably a necessary bad for the third movie to be PG13, otherwise the films won´t be financially backed by the company. Ie. a compromise.

I really enjoy the Riddick character, Pitchblack was great, the second one entertaining and the animated film entertaining as well. But the movies should be R, like the first and the animated, it is really a natural thing for Riddick, an antihero.

Ok

I am pretty sure when Vin Diesel says "PG" rating he means PG-13. This isn't the freaking Pacifier.

Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed for these!

I'm really hoping this isn't just all talk and false hope because I love the Riddick universe. I can't count how many times I've watched the first two films. Riddick is Diesel's best character and here's to hoping he gets to live once (and maybe even twice) more!

I thought Pitch Black was completely kickass. From what I've seen of COR...it was kinda goofy.

Great news.

And it's obvious by "PG" he means "PG-13"

Don't be so naive, Niki.

the whole series should have been R, COR was a fun movie, but not a masterpiece, Pitch Black was great!

I liked COR...

One of those movies you choose not to see in the theatres but waited for the cable premier.Like all Hollywood scripts, it'll change up. Hopefully for the better.

The third in the trilogy will be PG and it will involve Vin taking down Necromongers with little furry midgets called Ewoks.
