It’s all happening, as they say. Riddick, the sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, will actually shoot this summer, says star Vin Diesel. But don’t think this is easy. Oh no. Vin is sacrificing for you. He’s taking scale to make this movie. As far as I can tell, scale for a feature film production is $

D T [David Twohy] the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer.

The best part of that - easily! - is “Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place… called Riddick.” He’s taking this SO SERIOUSLY.
