Next Riddick Flick to Start Shooting This Summer


Riddick is back! Vin Diesel Facebook’d earlier today:

“GRRRR… David Twohy the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch… In order for us to make a true R-rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the Find Me Guilty experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world)…”

Find Me Guilty is a 2006 gangster biopic, and is still unreleased. Scale is like pro bono to a lawyer. Where a lawyer get’s paid in reputation, a scale working actor gets pennies compared to the huge budget of a film.

“Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit, but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place called Riddick. I need to hear from our collective… you. Wisdom and clarity appreciated!”

What does this all mean? Well David Twohy has said before that the studios insisted on a “PG-13” sequel, and that one way to go about getting a “R” rating is by Vin getting the bottom feeder; nom nom nom pennies!

We’ll have to wait and see if Riddick really starts filming in a month or two.
