Word is spreading around Hollywood the last couple of days about something that we gave you a heads up on a couple of months ago- Vin Diesel is about to begin works on a third film in the Pitch Black series tentatively titled Riddick.
On his Facebook page yesterday Diesel posted this item to confirm the story- but let us tell you this has been in the works for MONTHS, there was just a conflict of schedules (oh yeah, and MONEY) but it was going to happen. Anyway, here is Diesel’s words;
”GRRRR.. D T the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch… in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the “Find me Guilty” experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world)… Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit… but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place… called Riddick.”
As you know, Diesel is currently in the film Fast Five, he also just locked in a new franchise (see our news item and video HMTV New Break) and he also is planning on revamping the XXX franchise.
