It’s looking like this whole Riddick thing is going to be a reality as star Vin Diesel continues to share set photos via Facebook of the movie. Personally I keep being surprised every few months when a new slew of images and plot discussions take place, as I feel there was no one else in the world who enjoyed Chronicles. Somehow David Twohy and Diesel have convinced not only a production company, but many former cast members to return. Things are looking a lot more steampunkish with Riddick on the throne, and we now have a detailed plot synopsis along with extended cast list.
Most names, like Karl Urban, are familiar to fans but there’s a head scratcher or two on the cast list. The addition of WWE superstar Dave Bautista sort of makes sense, but who is Keri Hilson and why is she in this movie? Is it heartless and sexist that I assume she’ll play the throwaway hot woman role?
Here’s the cast list and synopsis from Universal.
