Director David Twohy has revealed on his official site that he's still keen on further work with his beloved Riddick (Vin Diesel) character.

Twohy says that "All I can say now is "We're talking about it." The DVD numbers were really good - we know that, and some potential financiers know that. But if another movie surfaces, it probably won't be a Universal movie and probably will be an independent movie. Which means we'll have to make it for substantially less than the last installment."

He's ready for the challenge though - "That's okay. 'Pitch Black' was $22 million all in. Maybe it's time to go back to our roots - as we go on to The UnderVerse."

RIDDICK: Despite the bombing of "The Chronicles of Riddick", Vin Diesel is still keen on doing further adventures of the character who first appeared in "Pitch Black".

In fact, Diesel tells MTV News that there's two more films in the works - "David Twowy right now is writing the scripts. The only question is whether we take a page from the 'Lord of the Rings' guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind" he says.

Why is a further sequel taking so long to do? "Everyone knows I love the Riddick character and I'm always working on it. It just takes five years to make another one because David Twohy and I are so precious about it..."Sooner or later we all end up in the Underverse".

RIDDICK: "GS: The current state of a third movie in the Riddick series seems a little uncertain to the casual fan right now. How does that affect the writing and story explored in the new Dark Athena content? Does it sort of give you guys more room to explore this fiction, or does that change anything about how you've approached this game?

VD: Good question. Maybe we're too tight-lipped about the next Chronicles of Riddick film, and I think circa the release of [Dark Athena] that's probably when you'll start hearing more about the next Riddick film. It is underway and I almost think it's a coincidence that we haven't heard anything, that there hasn't been a lot of public stuff on the Riddick movie."

He continues a bit later, "But it's interesting that you've made that comment. Maybe we've been too tight-lipped about the movie, and you'll probably hear a lot more about it as this game is released. I think we were so adamant about knocking this game out of the park that we've been doing a lot of late hours--the overtime's on the game at the moment while [Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick screenwriter] David Twohy is finishing up the next script."

In Pitch Black a transport ship containing 40 passengers heading to other worlds for, among other reasons, settling, New Mecca, and for one passenger, Riddick, another cell. The ship encounters a tiny meteor storm and crash lands on a barren planet with only 1/4 of its complement surviving. Survival is tough with Riddick on the loose and no water in sight. However, come nightfall, they have even more to fear...

While doing press this weekend for A PERFECT GETAWAY (a quite fun little thriller), writer/director David Twohy touched upon a possible return to the RIDDICK series he developed with the films PITCH BLACK and its spin-off THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK.

“I know there’s an audience out there that wants more, still,” says Twohy. “I think the problem is, on the second one, we probably spent too much money, probably were too ambitious, probably tried to reach too much. But then as Browning said, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp.” What’s heaven for? So, if we’re guilty of overreaching, it’s probably not the greatest crime in the world.”

That doesn’t mean he would be a repeat offender however, as the creator tells Fango, “[We’d] scale it back down, I think we have to, if we’re raising independent money. The budget is smaller, the scale has to be smaller and R-rated, make it tough, as tough as we can. That was the other problem with CHRONICLES, we had to make it PG-13, because once it got so big, the studio says there’s no choice but that. So then you have to start cutting back how tough people are and it doesn’t feel right for that series.”

As far as details on the possible film go, Twohy wasn’t very specific, rather outlining plans that still seem far off. “I’ve sketched out two stories that would continue the adventures of Riddick,” he explains. “Vin and I will figure out which one we like best, and we’ll figure out if we should be doing that at the studio level, who would probably want another PG-13, or if we can go raise our own money territory by territory and investments stake in the movie and make it R-rated, like it should be, like the first one was.”

The first one was way too predictable.
As for the second one, they tried to bring too many characters and mythology... ending up developping almost none of them,

RIDDICK: Location scouting on a new film in the Riddick franchise has begun in New Zealand says Vin Diesel's Facebook page.

The post also indicates David Twohy has finished the script for the third film featuring the character.

Diesel first played the gruff, sliver-eyed anti-hero Riddick in the well-received cult hit "Pitch Black" in 2000. Four years later he reprised the role in 2004's generally panned big-budget flop "The Chronicles of Riddick".

Diesel has also voiced the character in the animated short 'Dark Fury' and the video games 'Escape from Butcher Bay' and 'Assault on Dark Athena'.

Twohy has indicated the film will be an R-rated feature and more modestly budgeted along 'Pitch' lines which allows him and Vin more creative control.

Late last week we heard that Vin Diesel and writer/director David Twohy were re-teaming for a third sci-fi film featuring Diesel's famed character Riddick. Today some story details have emerged from a sales run at the European Film Market.

As reported before, the film is ditching the larger space opera style of the previous film in favour of a more horror-toned, character-driven survival drama along the lines of the first film "Pitch Black".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story starts with Riddick left for dead on a barren alien planet and must deal with two groups of bounty hunters on rockets, not to mention the local hostile wildlife including three-legged bisons and mud demons.

The end of the last film had Riddick essentially left in charge of the Necromonger army and its quest to find the Underverse. It's unclear if any mention will be made at all to events in that film (if they are it'll likely be a few quick throwaway lines).

Diesel revealed the other week that some of the shooting would take place in the White Desert in Farafra, Egypt likely towards the end of the year. The previous films were shot predominantly in South Australia and Vancouver respectively.

Coming Attractions has posted up a script review of the third "Riddick" feature which is currently in early pre-production.

Going back to the lower-cost, hard R-rated edge of the original "Pitch Black" rather than the space opera PG-13 antics of "The Chronicles of Riddick", the project is currently titled "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking".

Picking up where 'Chronicles' left off, David Twohy's script has the anti-hero no longer wishing to be the Necromonger's Lord Marshal and making a deal with Lord Vaako to hand the position over to him in exchange for being returned to Furya.

Things turn to hell though with Riddick left for dead on a harsh planet with three moons, populated with nasty creatures like trisons and mud demons, and being hunted by two shipfuls of mercenaries.

Visions of a woman haunt him, while the character comes to realise that the only way to survive is to drop the more civilised traits he's picked up in recent films and return to his merciless hunter origins.

official synopsis for sci-fi actioneer "Riddick", the third film to feature Vin Diesel's anti-hero. Here's the storyline for your perusal:

"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."

Shooting on the film kick off later this year once Diesel wraps "Fast Five".
