Props go out to Bloody-disgusting, who caught wind of this cool “Riddick” storyboard art posted by the man, Vin Diesel himself. Vin took to his Facebook account to share this image, as well as a little information in relation to the upcoming, The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.
The forthcoming film is currently casting, and though the story itself remains questionable (a synops is attached below, though how accurate it is, we're unsure of), it has been confirmed that David Twohy will return to the franchise. In other good news, an R rating has been approved!
Synops: Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
Check out what Vin had to say about production, as well as this nifty image!
While I was working on character, the Director and his team of artists have been creating the world and style of this picture. We all know how much I enjoy concept art and storyboards, haha, I am like a kid in a candy shop.
Seeing the early stage of CGI is always fascinating to me, it is a element that usually comes together long after the filming process, so you look forward to seeing it fully realized.
First stop for the Riddick production is Canada, which is where we shot a large part of Chronicles...
P.s. I am grateful to have Universal in such support of this complex character's journey... not many studios would back an "R" rating. Very cool.
