Riddick rises again after finding some cash

Nov. 28, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Last we heard about the third CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK movie, production had been halted as the studio literally locked out the cast and crew after not being paid. Kind of an awkward situation, but now apparently the conflict has been resolved.

The studio head reports that he has been reimbursed, as the production company managed to find enough funds to turn the lights back on. It's good to see this moving forward, but if they're this starved for cash, will this just be the first of many problems the film faces in an effort to get made?

I like the Riddick films, and I hope its smooth sailing from here. It's a cool universe and more deserving of a sequel than say, the infinite amount of UNDERWORLD or RESIDENT EVIL films that keep getting made. I mean Vin Diesel might not have the rack of Milla Jovovich or the ass of Kate Beckinsale, but I'd much prefer him leading my film than either of them.

Are you excited to see a third Riddick film? Or has the series overstayed its welcome?

Extra Tidbit: Actually, come to think of it, he might have a bigger rack than Milla Jovovich.

yea I'm excited for a third Riddick, but hopefully he gets in great shape for the film. He looked a little pudgy in the new fast and furious.

Any man that kills another man with a teacup can officially be called a badass! I thought Pitch Black was cool, but I really dug what they did with the sequel. While not perfect, Chronicles definitely set up a unique future world. Hope they stick to it.

With all due respect...

I strongly disagree with the notion of preferring to look at Vin Diesel over Kate or Milla.

I would love to see this be a series but I really don't see it moving past the third film... assuming they actually get to finish that.

You aren't afraid of the dark, are you?

Glad to hear that this sequel is coming. I love the Riddick universe, especially after watching the films and playing both Escape From Butcher Bay and Assault on Dark Athena. Hope this new film touches on Riddick's past.

Am I the only one who wishes this one was still called "Dead Man Stalking"? I thought that was a cheesy/cool subtitle.

Riddick is the true sci-fi bad-ass, he deserves another come-back!

I enjoyed Pitch Black, but I thought Chronicles was a piece of shit all over the board. I personally don't think Riddick is an interesting enough character to build a successful franchise around. Too one-dimensional.

Riddick!!

I loved Pitch Black, Dark Fury, and Chronicles. I hope that this new one keeps up with the amazing feel of the first one, but fleshes out more like the third. The anime was a great tie in for anyone who hasn't seen it.
