The character of Richard B. Riddick has had a rollercoaster ride in the movies. Low-budget action horror
made him a hit, then
The Chronicles Of Riddick
bombed to make him a Hollywood outcast.
You can't keep a bad man down, though. And
star Vin Diesel has shared concept art from what will be the third movie in the series, promising it will be as R-rated as the blood spatter here suggests.
“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,” Diesel told his Facebook fans.
“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. I'm like a kid in a candy shop.”
According to the actor the third
film will begin its shoot in Canada.
“First stop for the
production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles,” he confirmed.
