NICE BIG RIDDICK UPDATE
So what is going on with RIDDICK, the prequel to one of the cooler sci-fi flicks to come out in the past few years, you may ask? Well, after spending months shooting the film up in Canada, writer/director David Twohy was nice enough to drop Joblo a line with the lowdown on this anticipated movie. Not much is known about the film other than the fact that it stars Vin Diesel, as well as Colm Feore, Judie Dench and Thandie Newton. Here's what the man himself told us that we can look forward to very soon:
As yesterday at midnight, the old PITCH BLACK website (www.pitchblack.com) was transformed into a dimensional portal that takes you on a fly-by of one (yes, just one, folks) of the worlds in the RIDDICK universe
On Monday/Tuesday the 15th/16th of December, the film's first trailer will hit Apple Trailers, followed shortly by its addition to the RETURN OF THE KING theatrical prints on the 17th. The trailer will provide a sneak look at some of the other worlds and characters from the film
Sometime in the spring, the official website will allow everyone to join in a bounty hunt for Richard B. Riddick himself through the site. The person who finds him first...is invited to the film's premiere in June. Sweet.
RIDDICK is set to be released on June 11, 2004
