Riddick director David Twohy gave the world an update on the eagerly anticipated third Riddick movie. The good news is, both Twohy and Vin aren't settling for any PG-13 nonsense, and the new film will be closer to Pitch Black.


In an interview with Shock Til You Drop Twohy explained what we have to look forward to, besides more glorious, graphic bloodshed.

"Vin and I have decided on one approach of those two, and there's some interest at the studio level but it would be as a PG-13 film, and we don't want to do that anymore. That's one of the concessions we thought we made with 'Riddick' that we shouldn't have made....The third movie would be more modestly-scaled and it would probably feel more like Pitch Black than Chronicles [of Riddick]. It will always be Riddick-centric."

And he says the film will focus more on the characters and how they deal with their tense situation, the same way Pitch did.

There's nothing more refreshing than reading a director talk about something everyone is super excited about, with actual insight and self-awareness. Chronicles, although amazing, did tackle a bit too much material, I'm happy to see that Vin and Twohy are focused and ready to deliver. Read the rest of the interview over at Shock Til You Drop.


Am I the only person that actually really, really enjoyed Chronicles of Riddick, flaws and all?

I thought everything about it was incredibly creative, cool and interesting.
