Vin Diesel gives another update on Riddick, with concept art

09.19.2011

You've gotta hand it to Vin Diesel -- he's become proficient at feeding the hunger of RIDDICK fans with tiny morsels about the next movie.

The latest comes, as always, from Vin's popular Facebook page, where he offers up the concept art you see above. The image comes with the title "The Final Stand of Riddick" and features the intergalactic badass in the climactic battle with what are presumably the "mud demons", a lethal indigenous species Riddick encounters on the planet that serves as the setting for most of the film.

Diesel had this to add: "Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to film. The road to the "R" rating, that so many of you were vocal about, has been a long one. The advantage however, (never empower the negatives) was that we were allowed a really extensive preproduction. The art work is so good, the artists have really outdone themselves in illustrating this world at it's early stage.

When this film comes to the screen... know that you willed it into being!"

RIDDICK 3 finds our favorite space felon (post-Necromongers) on a barren alien world, where he must deal with creatures and mercenaries before heading to his homeworld of Furya for final retribution. The movie started casting last month and should be filming soon, with a possible release date some time in 2012.

C'mon Johns, You got the big gauge

I totally game for more Riddick but they have to go back to the "Pitch Black" attitude. maybe they can also shot for a prequel as I am sure that i am not the only one who would like to how Johns caught this guy

I hope the R ratings sticks.

I'm really hoping some of these up coming rated R sci fi movies (Riddick & Prometheus) do well. It would be great if that lead to ATMOM actually getting made.

I do love the continual feeds for this film. It's also nice to see this back to the Pitch Black concepts versus the Chronicles. I just hope they don't ditch the ending of Chronicles by not answering what happens between his time as a king and ending up on that planet. I also hope they get more into his past and his species.

Twohy & Diesel: "How's the release date look?"

Universal Pictures: "Looks clear."

[Chronicles Of Riddick comes out June 11th, as expected it is beyond awesome, yet gets slaughtered commercially by the crowded Summer Movie Season of 2004.]

Twohy & Diesel: "You said it was clear!"

Universal Pictures: "We said it *looked* clear."

Twohy & Diesel: "Well, how does it look now?"

Universal Pictures: "...Looks clear."

Hey! Universal Pictures!...Please don't fuck this one up! This

Oh wow, he's from Fury-a, get it

Why is he not doing the dumb "it's an animal thing" we've these fuckers.

But no, we seriously need this. Hollywood keeps making movies so boring and all around bad you can't even make fun of them. We need flicks like the Riddick series for the shitty characters and great unintentional laughs

So happy to see Riddick knee-deep in monsters once again. I'm so excited for this next installment.

I am getting more and more down for this - Seems like they are really putting their hearts into this.

The final stand of Riddick?

The name of the concept art might be a huge spoiler. That said, it looks epic and can't wait to see that scene brought to life. Loving all the concept art we've been seeing and it's great to hear that it WILL be rated R.

BRING IT ON!

So, I wasn't one of the people clamoring for another one (though I did really like Pitch Black a lot), but I'm gonna kind of feel bad if this thing gets rated R and then tanks at the box office. Not really, but in a perfect world, movies like this one, where concessions are made on behalf of the fans, deserve to have the fans flock to them in droves. At least enough to give it a #2 or #3 showing opening weekend. That's just the first thing I thought after reading Mr. Diesel's post.
