New Chronicles Of Riddick resumes filming

Vin Diesel will be returning to the set of the new The Chronicles Of Riddick franchise after production was shut down last month.

Filming was cancelled due to financial problems said to be from unpaid studio bills, which have now been paid.

Vin Diesel will be reprising his role as Richard B. Riddick for the first time since 2004's The Chronicals Of Riddick.

The series follows Richard B. Riddick, who is an escaped convict with excellent fighting skills and the ability to see in the dark.

The latest film, titled The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking , will continue shooting on 28 December.

It is to be written and directed by David Twohy who has directed the previous Riddick films.
