FOSTER CHRONICLING RIDDICK
Science fiction author and movie novelist Alan Dean Foster has revealed on his website that his next project will be the novelization of THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, now filming. Foster, who has done numerous movie adaptations in the past, surprisingly hasn't adapted a film into prose for a decade; the last adaptation he worked on was for ALIEN 3.
'One reason I decided to do it was because the writer-director of the original film, David Twohy, is also involved in the follow-up,' said Foster on his website. 'The deal also involves my bringing several film projects directly to Universal, and to working on several properties they already own. For the usual reasons, I can't go into detail about any of these right now.'
