Principle photography has wrapped on Riddick 3 in Montreal. Director David Twohy wrote a new blog post announcing the accomplishment where he said the following words:
"So our business here is done — principle photography, anyway. It was a challenging schedule we had for this latest installment of RIDDICK – a scant 47 days – but we managed to get what we needed (and more), thanks to a skilled crew and a gifted and willing cast. I’m packing up now to return to L.A. after five months here, but the memories of Montreal are already piling up in my head in a way that I know will haunt me, happily, for years to come."
Twohy also posted this photo showing himself (in baseball cap) with the actors playing Santana's crew of mercs.- David Twohy. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Read Coming Attractions' exclusive review of the screenplay for The Chronicles of Riddick 3: Dead Man Stalking and find out what's planned to happen for Vin Diesel's ex-con and vengeance-filled Furyan.
"When we see Riddick at the beginning of Dead Man Stalking he's a bloody battered mess, crawling for his life on the baked floor of an alien world," writes CA's creator Patrick Sauriol in his review. "The predators native to this planet are circling in and waiting for death to come so they can feed at Riddick's corpse -- but he won't let them. Riddick realizes here that he's got to let what happened to him in Pitch Black and Chronicles go if he's to survive the next ten seconds, let alone get off this forsaken pit of hell."
Learn what happens next (and if Patrick liked it) in his review of Riddick 3. [Full story]- Coming Attractions. Comment on this Scoop (0)

That piece of artwork you see on your left is early concept art from Riddick 3. It wasn't stolen out of Patrick Tatopolous' design studio and posted on a movie news website, nor was it officially released on an official Riddick website (one doesn't exist online yet.) No, it came from Facebook -- specifically the user account of Mr. Vin Diesel himself, along with this missive:
"Early Riddick concept art... first frame of a 2D Motion Choreography Study.
"The Furian... left for dead...
"p.s. Being involved in the various preproduction engines, I am afforded an education that is priceless. I have always been a fan of internships as a way of education. When Steven Spielberg hired me for 'Ryan, the running joke was, that I would have come to set to just get him coffee... haha, he didn't have to write a role for me - it was an amazingly educational experience."- Vin Diesel via Facebook.

Story details surrounding the third Riddick movie have been published by The Hollywood Reporter, with the info coming out from a presentation to Russian distribution companies held last Saturday. Vin Diesel was at this presentation personally to discuss what takes place in the movie.
According to the trade, the storyline for Riddick finds the character now billed as the galaxy's most wanted man. Left stranded on a barren planet, Riddick has to deal with the world's native lifeforms such as "trisons" (three-legged bison aliens) and "mud demons." Riddick is also being chased by two different groups of bounty hunters, one of which comes after him using flying cycles for transport.
The Russian businessmen liked what they heard. Instead of selling the distribution rights for the picture for around $2.2 million, a bidding war emerged. The company that won was Central Partnership for Russia with a winning bid of $2.5 million.- The Hollywood Reporter. Comment on this Scoop (0)

After several years in development hell, the third movie starring Vin Diesel as futuristic anti-hero Richard P. Riddick is moving forward.
Universal Pictures will distribute the new movie, presently known under the title Riddick, domestically while Lionsgate is shopping the rights for international territories. Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick director/writer David Twohy is returning and star Vin Diesel will also produce the new movie.
While they don't have any hard details on what the new Riddick movie's storyline will be about, Variety states that the scale will be smaller in scope like Pitch Black rather than Chronicles.
A production schedule is still being developed but Riddick won't shoot until after Diesel finishes Fast Five, the fifth movie in the Fast and the Furious series.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)
