First official Riddick still features Vin Diesel sporting some new goggles
I love Vin Diesel's tenacity. The RIDDICK films have been fun to one degree or another, but it's been the underdog nature of the franchise that has really endeared the films to me in a weird way. That Diesel has had to jump through countless hoops to get another entry in this pulpy, often silly sci-fi series made is certainly charming.
And though for a minute there it seemed like RIDDICK was being shot entirely on a cell phone camera, today we're finally getting a nice, clear, and official look at a real production still from the upcoming sequel. Here's Diesel with some words taken from his Facebook page:
First time I posted about Riddick was back in 2009, Facebook was fresh...
They were asking me to come to the headquarters to talk about this new concept of communicating with fans. I was proud to lead that wave, yet all I was doing, was opening up about my passion - film.
So this picture of Our 2012 production of Riddick, is a cool victory for all of us... it shows that studios can be influenced by your voice.
P.s. Proud of Our Riddick team.
RIDDICK stars Diesel, "Battlestar Galactica"'s Katee Sackhoff, and the awesome Jordi Molla (BAD BOYS II, BLOW). Click the pic below for BIG.
