Additional details, such as a release date, remain unknown.In the spirit of Creative Sundays…I asked the director to send a key frame that I could post it for you.
Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to the film. The road to the “R” rating, that so many of you were vocal about, has been a long one. The advantage however, (never empower the negatives) was that we were allowed a really extensive preproduction process. The art work so good, the artists have really outdone themselves in illustrating this world at it’s [sic] early stage.
When this film comes to the screen…know that you willed it into being!
I got two meetings today that I have been prepping for…one with the Director and another one with the head of the studio to discuss casting and the 2012 release date. Like always, I appreciate having your voice present in these meetings.
P.S. Share your thoughts…casting, release date, mythology or anything else. It’s Sunday and we are, at the very least, allowed to be creative in thought.
Oh, and here's some "Riddick 3" concept art shared by Diesel:
