Riddick – Plot details emerge for Vin Diesel’s eye shine guy
Posted by LiveFor on February 17, 2010
Last week news was out that David Twohy was going to definitely get the chance to write and direct a third Chronicles of Riddick film. Simply called Riddick it would again star Vin Diesel as the antihero.
Today THR have the news that a bidding war has gone down over the distribution rights in Russia. Apparently, they love a bit of Riddick in Russia.
Most interestingly is the glimpse of what we can expect to see in the third installment. Looks like the Necromongers have dumped Riddick:
Though billed as a back-to-basics approach to the character popularized by Diesel, the script features the character — the most wanted man in the galaxy — left for dead on a barren alien planet, dealing with “trisons” (three-legged bisons) and “mud demons.” He must then contend with two squads of bounty hunters, one of which ride rockets called jetcycles.
Sounds slightly like generic sci-fi to me, but generic sci-fi can still be good. How do you feel about the plot details? Are you glad to see Riddick going back to basics?
