DIESEL FUELS RIDDICK & HANNIBAL RUMOURS
Might those scary returns - and reviews - for 'Chronicles of Riddick' turned star Vin - 'Mark Vincent' - Diesel off making a proposed third film in Twohy's series?
Maybe. He's not talking as if it's the sure-thing he was a few months back (so that could mean, and what's probably more the case, that it's Universal that doesn't want a stinkin' third chapter - not Diesel, who once said it'd be a trilogy to rival 'Lord of the Rings') but did say there's a flatplan for a proposed follow-up.
According to Diesel, they've got 'two more stories' they're looking at. 'The cool thing about David and I working together is that David is a sci-fi guy and I?m a fantasy guy', Diesel tells GetOut Magzine. 'David has written these incredible science-fiction pictures and I?ve spent my life playing Dungeons and Dragons and living in the world of fantasy.'
Diesel's immediate focus is trying to get the long-planned 'Hannibal' (nothing to with jailbirds that eat the flesh off guards faces) off the ground. 'I?m dying to direct this,' he says, adding that he?s going over conception art for the film. 'I see the images in my head. When we have story meetings I end up acting out scenes ? it?s my favorite story to tell.'
And do we think he'll do 'Fast and the Furious 3'? Not a chance.
