Riddick Header

Riddick was one of 2013’s most entertaining and satisfying genre movies for many reasons, the most important being that it brought Vin Diesel‘s favorite character back to his darker, more violent roots in gloriously bloody R-rated style. I loved it on first viewing and on the second it just seemed to improve a bit in spite of its flaws.

The movie is hitting Blu-ray in a few weeks and among the extras are an extended director’s cut with eight minutes of additional footage, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and the motion comic, Riddick: Blindsided, which acts as prequel of sorts to the film.

Blindsided was released online over the summer prior to Riddick‘s theatrical release. You can watch it here below.

Vin Diesel Used ‘Fast & Furious’ Cameo Role To Retain Rights To ‘Riddick’

Normally, an actor would like to be paid handsomely for a small cameo role in a film, but not Vin Diesel. Instead of receiving a check, the actor received something that was closer to his heart and much more valuable: the rights to his character Riddick. Diesel talked about the trade during the Riddick film premiere in L.A.

In 2006, when Universal was looking to give the Fast & Furious franchise a recharged, they wanted to bring back the face of the franchise to ensure that fans would return for more – four more if you’re keeping count. So when the studio asked Diesel to appear in a cameo role in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift; the actor agreed, but instead of being given a check, the actor acquired the rights to Riddick.

Jordi Molla

Despite some recent financial headaches that halted filming for two months, the production of the upcoming Riddick, which will bring Vin Diesel back to the star-making role he first played in the 2000 sci-fi thriller Pitch Black, is moving full-speed ahead.

The David Twohy-directed sequel has just added a new player to its growing cast: according to Variety, Jordi Molla, the Spanish actor who has played outsized heavies in big-budget action movies such as Knight and Day and Bad Boys II, is currently in negotiations to play the role of “Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.” The actor was recently seen as the villain in the Zoe Saldana action flick Colombiana.

The production of Riddick, the latest in the sci-fi action franchise starring Vin Diesel as a fearsome criminal antihero with exceptional night vision, was well underway before it was shut down reportedly due to a severe cash flow shortage.

TMZ spoke with Michel Trudel, the owner of the studio in Montreal where the film was shooting, who said that Diesel’s production company One Race Films has failed to make its payments for the use of his facilities on time. As a result Trudel states that he was forced to evict the Riddick cast and crew from the studio and even changed the locks until he is paid in full. He’s not alone there; according to unnamed sources close to the production, more than a few members of the crew have not received their paychecks in over two weeks.

Vin Diesel Releases Awesome Concept Art For New ‘Riddick’ Movie

Concept art from Riddick

The latest cinematic adventure of Riddick, the vicious yet resourceful criminal anti-hero played by Vin Diesel who first appeared in the 2000 sci-fi thriller Pitch Black and later returned in his own big-budget adventure The Chronicles of Riddick in 2004, has slowly been gaining momentum since it was first announced nearly two years ago. We previously reported on the new film, which will be simply titled Riddick, HERE and HERE . Today Diesel has released a piece of concept art on his Facebook page. You can check out the full image below this article.

The independently-financed film will reportedly discard the elaborate mythology that Diesel and writer-director David Twohy were initially developing for Riddick to explore and take the character back to basics, putting him into a struggle for survival on a hostile alien planet that will make every other battle he has fought in his life seem like a prelude. Riddick finds himself pitted against otherworldly beasts and mercenaries out for his blood. The project has an undetermined 2012 release date.

Vin Diesel’s Latest ‘Riddick’ Adventure Begins Casting

It’s been more than a year and a half since we first reported that a new movie featuring Riddick, the badass monster-slaying criminal with excellent night vision first played by Vin Diesel in the 2000 sci-fi/horror hit Pitch Black, was going ahead with Diesel once more starring and David Twohy, the writer and director of Pitch Black and its big-budget 2004 sequel The Chronicles of Riddick, back on scripting and directing duties (you can read about that HERE). The movie will be titled simply Riddick and will reportedly be smaller in scale than Chronicles and feature the character doing what he does best: kicking all kinds of ass while saying very little.

The Chronicles of Riddick was intended to be the start of a new trilogy for the character as he ventured into the realm of dark fantasy as opposed to the B-movie creature feature style of Pitch Black, but Universal Pictures put any plans for future sequels on hold when the movie only grossed back $57 million of its reported $110 million budget. Undeterred by this development Twohy and Diesel have persisted in bringing a new Riddick movie to the big screen over the years; in that time Diesel has found success with the Fast and the Furious franchise and Twohy has directed A Perfect Getaway.
