"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
The Riddick sequel that David Twohy and Vin Diesel are cooking up is still happening, and that’s a good thing. Getting back to the crazy sci-fi universe of master criminal Richard B. Riddick — think the “B” stands for “Bunnies”? — is only a good thing, and that’s especially true now that Diesel has confirmed, via the movie’s Facebook page, that it will receive an R-rating.
Read his official confirmation below and check out the newly released concept art up top:
I hear you…
While I was working on character, the Director and his team of artists have been creating the world and style of this picture. We all know how much I enjoy concept art and storyboards, haha, I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Seeing the early stage of CGI is always fascinating to me, it is a element that usually comes together long after the filming process, so you look forward to seeing it fully realized.
First stop for the Riddick production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles…
P.s. I am grateful to have Universal in such support of this complex character’s journey… not many studios would back an “R” rating. Very cool.
