Yeah, we kind of forgot about this franchise too, that is until news broke today that Universal has confirmed Riddick‘s released date (September 6, 2013). Production got underway just about a year ago in Montreal, Canada, which hardly makes sense since the third installment (following Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick)takes place on a sun-scorched planet. Yup, Riddick was left for dead, encounters an alien race, sets off an emergency beacon, and then must face some mercenaries. Sounds like a typical day for Riddick.
The title role has been reprized once again by Vin Diesel, and this time around he’ll be joined by Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Dave Bautista, Nolan Gerard Funk, Bokeem Woodbine, and Jordi Molla. The film is directed by David Twohy, and it has reportedly garnered itself an R rating, which you’ll be able to see in IMAX glory.
Stay tuned as more details are released.
