More Chronicles Of Riddick Sequel Bites
the new Riddick film will be more down and dirty with less “fantasy epic stuff” to deal with. A bounty hunter/space pirate type of story line is expected. The film will have a capped budget of around $35 million.
It sounds like they’re scaling it back from the epic, over the top scale of the last Riddick movie. Actually I think that’s the way to go. Much as I liked Chronicles of Riddick, the epic fantasy elements of the film are what worked the least. The best scene in the entire movie is the opening, with Riddick facing off against a handful of bounty hunters, not the later stuff when he’s fighting massive numbers of CGI armies in a lavish palace.
With Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious hitting theaters soon, don’t be surprised if we get some sort of official announcement concerning the next Riddick installment soon.
