Vin Diesel taking pay cut to star in Riddick 3?


Vin Diesel has chimed in with an update on the production of the third Riddick movie, revealing that he may have to take a pay cut in order for the film to shoot.

Talking on Facebook , the actor revealed that he’s just met with director David Twohy, who’s confident that the Riddick sequel can shoot this summer.

Not only that, but they’re definitely aiming to make it R-rated – no doubt after the backlash reaction to first sequel Chronicles being watered down for a more mainstream appeal.

“[Twohy] the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news,” Diesel writes. “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.

“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.”

From what we’ve learnt so far about Riddick 3 – namely that it’ll be a back-to-basics horror in the vein of the awesome Pitch Black – Diesel would be daft not to do this.
