Today, however, Diesel found himself at a crossroads. Here’s what he wrote, prefaced with a “Grrrrr.”
“[David Twohy] the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch…in order for us to make a true R-rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the Find me Guilty experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world). Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit…but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place…called Riddick. Now, I need to hear from Our collective…you.”
He later added: “P.s. I am off to another meeting with David, the director of Riddick… to see concept art and discuss the potential schedule.”
Coming off of a hit sequel like Fast Five, will Diesel take the pay cut? If you want to see the next film in the Riddick series, head to his Facebook page and sound off!
