NEW ADDITIONS TO RIDDICK
Karl Urban (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) is set and Thandie Newton is talks to join the cast of Universal Pictures' Chronicles of Riddick for writer-director David Twohy, Radar Pictures and One Race Prods.
The Hollywood Reporter says production on the film begins June 9 in Vancouver, with Vin Diesel, Judi Dench and Colm Feore also starring. 'Riddick' continues the adventures of intergalactic prisoner Riddick, a character first introduced in the 2000 film Pitch Black.
In the sequel, Riddick (Diesel), now a hunted man, finds himself in the middle of two opposing forces in a major crusade. Feore will play Lord Marshal, a warrior priest who is the leader of a sect that is waging the 10th and perhaps final crusade 500 years in the future. Dench will play Aereon, an ambassador from the Elemental race. She is an ethereal being who helps Riddick unearth his origins.
