ON

Following the news that Katee Sackhoff is joining Vin Diesel in Riddick, comes word from Variety that Jordi Molla is also in talks to play the villain in the David Twohy film.

In the film, Riddick (Diesel) is betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet. He 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.

Molla would play Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.

Molla’s recent credits include Colombiana and Knight and Day.
