The third installment of the Chronicles of Riddick series — “Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking” — has been tied up in post-pre-production woes for quite some time now as the movie’s backers, including film star Vin Diesel, attempt to secure funding for the scifi flick.
New details have surfaced showing that the film’s casting director, who was also responsible for casting on the first two Riddick films, has begun searching for new cast to join the upcoming movie. The crew are officially looking to fill the following roles:
- Boss Johns
- The sexy female mercenary Dahl
- The smug commander Krone
MovieHole, who has been breaking the Riddick 3 news, also managed a look at the film’s script and has delivered a spoiler-free overview of what we can expect from the third film:
In a nutshell, the movie sees Riddick back on a barren planet, surrounded by monsters and mercenaries – both species who want him dead and vice versa.
Though there’s a couple of potential cameos from previous Riddick movie faves, it’s mostly fresh blood this time surrounding the big guy. And speaking of fresh, the character seems to have gotten a welcome, kick-ass overhaul….he’s more brutal, bad-ass and virile (as some may say) than he was in the previous films.
There’s a real sense of fun here. The dialogue is delicious and the characters are not only memorable, they’re a blast to be around – particularly our hero whose discovered both a charming sense of humour and personality along the way.
Their post continues in more detail, but fans who do not enjoy spoilers may want to stay away.
