For fans waiting for the next chapter in the saga of the character of Riddick, as played by Vin Diesel, the waiting just got a little shorter. Writer-director David Twohy has announced that principal photography is complete on the third film in the series -- simply called Riddick -- and tweeted a photo of himself with members of the crew of Santana (Jordi Molla) on the set.
“It was a challenging schedule we had for this latest installment of Riddick,” he said in his tweet. “A scant 47 days, but we managed to get what we needed (and more), thanks to a skilled crew and a gifted and willing cast. I’m packing up now to return to L.A. after five months here, but the memories of Montreal are already piling up in my head in a way that I know will haunt me, happily, for years to come.”
We don’t have a release date yet for the film, so stay tuned. The flick also stars Karl Urban, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff and Keri Hilson.
