Betrayed, left for dead, seeking revenge
Soon, writer-director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel will begin rolling Riddick – a tentative title, we presume, but a welcome change after an early script review reported it was called The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking. Now that we’ve got our mitts on an official synopsis, the latter moniker is apropos.
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.
Patrick Tatopoulos has been designing creatures for the third film in Twohy’s Riddick trilogy. More to come…
