RIDDICK'S NEXT ADVENTURE
'Will someone please give Vin Diesel a ring and tell him ?Riddick? is now about as appealing as a squashed cat toasted sandwich?
On the last leg of his promotional push for ?Chronicles of Riddick?, the muscle-bound stalk again confirmed that he and David Twohy are still going ahead with a second sequel ? despite the dire B.O returns of the recent instalment.
According to The Vin Diesel Experience, they?ve even got the storyline nutted out.
?In the next film, Riddick is going to go to the underverse?, Diesel tells FilmFocus.Co.Uk. ?Riddick will act with new elementals. Not air elementals [as Judi Dench's character is] but fire and water. It'll come full circle in C3 when he must return to Furia?.
Diesel says, ?The concept behind switching genres was to create a film that you could continue exploring. In the ending of this movie, it's not just something that says we're opening it up so we can tell another story, it's very specific. A very daring ending because it's left open-ended?
?We gave the script to the studio, I bought three leather binders? explains Vin, ?One said C1, one said C2 and one said C3. They all had locks on them and we only gave the key to C1 to the studio?.
If they do make a third ?Riddick? film, how about adding some violence, story and excitement to proceedings. And while they?re at it ? extract the PG-13 elements? (Kriszta from ?The Vin Diesel Experience? summed the rating fiasco up best: ?Get away with PG-13 ?! Vin, Twohy, you still do not get, why your freakin' movie failed big time?! It was fucking insulting to the fandom, and if you need money for the sequel, pls do team up with Paul WS Anderson. Then you can do an Alien vs. Predator vs. Riddick movie, rated G?. Pricleess!)
It?ll be interesting to see what happens to the planned ?Pitch Black? TV spin-off. The show, which was set to focus not on Riddick but Kyra, was all set to be a go for The Sci-Fi Channel. Haven?t heard much about it in recent times though, so wouldn?t be surprised if ? like the proposed ?Van Helsing? series ? the poor box office returns of its parents quickly killed it.'
