VIN DIESEL ON RIDDICK
MTV talked with Vin Diesel about the 'Pitch Black' sequel which he's about to begin work on shortly. Vin says 'I'm ecstatic about the size and the support of the studio to really create this mythology. I go in a couple of weeks to Vancouver to start rehearsals. We'll do a month of rehearsals, and I'll go into shooting next month. Riddick is definitely not an evolved person. He's still a killer in his own right. And I think we're going to find him after he's isolated himself and become this recluse for five years. So when we see him, they are awakening Riddick'. Dench's role as 'Aereon' is that of ' an 'Air-Elemental' ambassador [whose] very much the mentorlike archetype in this mythology'. It also seems material for further sequels will be shot with this film 'I don't know if it's gonna necessarily be a 'Lord of the Rings'[-type shoot] but I do know that they've talked about doing the first one and 'chapters' of both the second one and third one [at the same time], if that makes any sense. So they'll shoot some additional scenes'. Thanks to 'FanHalen'.
