Apparently Vin Diesel is determined to get the third Riddick movie made. Reports indicate that he is willing to work for scale in order for it to be made. What does it mean to work for scale? The actors’ unions set a “minimum wage” for actors depending on the project. Voiceover actors get a lower scale than a star of a movie. Usually actors get scale plus some fairly sizable percentage. Vin Diesel posted on his Facebook page recently: “Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit… ” Personally I am looking forward to seeing how they continue this science fiction saga.
The movie will be directed by David Twohy and is scheduled to start shooting this summer.
Storyline from IMDB:
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick 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. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
