Yea definitely. There is a lot of potential with the Riddick character. I would love to see a film of Escape from Butcher Bay. Was that set before Pitch Black or in between PB and COR? I can't remember now.

Before Pitch Black... cause Johns gets that injury that gets him addicted to pain killers.

Ohh yea, now I remember. Johns is a bad ass as well. It's a shame he is dead really. Cole Hauser was brilliant.

I think that's what made Pitch Black so great.... you really didn't know who was going to live. But then again, the history that they seem to setup a lot of history between Riddick and Johns... means that they could Temple of Doom a couple of stories about how they've met in the past before ending up in Pitch Black.

I did'nt really enjoy Riddick all that much it just lacked that feel of Pitch Black. It got to full of itself imo,and maybe like one guy said they had too big of a budget...got cgi happy and stuff. They should of made it more like the first in making it a dark movie,and keeping Riddick the anti-hero. It just did'nt hit the spot.
As of now I'm not sure I would want another one the way they finished the last..Really what are they gonna do now hes ruler of the Underverse?
They should of done the second one like a Bladerunner movie think it would of worked better..
I believe the plan for the 2nd movie was Riddick taking the Necromonger army into the Underverse to bring back Jack/Kyra to the world of the living, then the 3rd movie would have dealt with Furya.

I wouldnt mind a prequel bringing John's back at all, really cool character as well.

GS: The current state of a third movie in the Riddick series seems a little uncertain to the casual fan right now. How does that affect the writing and story explored in the new Dark Athena content? Does it sort of give you guys more room to explore this fiction, or does that change anything about how you've approached this game?

VD: Good question. Maybe we're too tight-lipped about the next Chronicles of Riddick film, and I think circa the release of [Dark Athena] that's probably when you'll start hearing more about the next Riddick film. It is underway and I almost think it's a coincidence that we haven't heard anything, that there hasn't been a lot of public stuff on the Riddick movie.

GS: So it hasn't affected the way you've explored the story in Dark Athena at all, or at least the writing team on the game?

VD: No, one of the important things we did early on in the process was really, really, really try to get every developer, every person working, every graphics designer working on this game to understand the mythology of the film and the IP as a whole. So there were bibles being created that talked about what can exist in this universe and what can't exist in this universe. So I'm actually proud about the fact that everyone is a Chronicles of Riddick expert on the game side. I think that adds something special to the game, and it definitely alleviates any concerns about where the story goes in the game. Because I feel like they've all committed so much to the franchise that everything they do only enhances the universe.

But it's interesting that you've made that comment. Maybe we've been too tight-lipped about the movie, and you'll probably hear a lot more about it as this game is released. I think we were so adamant about knocking this game out of the park that we've been doing a lot of late hours--the overtime's on the game at the moment while [Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick screenwriter] David Twohy is finishing up the next script.
I'm excited!

Pitch Black and TCOR are hitting Blu-ray on March 31st. No word on Dark Fury. :/

no, we dont' need a prequel for these movies. pitch black is the only 'prequel' story that we need. i certainly hope a 3rd movie comes out, i really enjoy the first 2 films, i just wouldnt' be too excited to hear about the necromongers coming back, they were kinda bland characters (the whole big army idea is overused)

I believe the plan for the next one was Riddick was going to take the army into the Underverse to bring back Kyra. Hope they have kept this story, sounds interesting.

So the Underverse is like limbo or something? Or is it actually THE afterlife sorta thing?

I always thought it was just a different dimension, like a parallel universe or something. Not the place where people go when they die.

Yeah I always thought of it more as some sort of different dimension rather than an actual afterlife (Underverse - a universe under ours).. But I suppose the afterlife could just be a different dimension you 'soul' happens to go to when you die or maybe only necros go there I don't know. But if the idea is that Riddick will enter the afterlife to save Kyra then the idea that it's actually just a different dimension makes sense.

I enjoyed Pitch Black and I also enjoyed Chronicles, although I can see why people might not like Chronicles as they do feel like different films. But I think it's an interesting and cool universe and would like to see it developed more. The idea of Riddick go to Underverse to save Kyra does sound pretty cool... Hopfully they can perhaps get the tone somewhere in between Chronicles and Riddick (which would work for me), given that the idea of Underverse/afterlife is quite a dark one...

Default Re: Riddick sequels still coming?

So here is my opinion on any future Riddick sequels. To give some perspective on my opinion, this is how I have experienced the franchise...

1. The Chronicles of Riddick. I saw this one first. I thought the Riddick character was pretty cool and I thought the film itself was boring and overblown at worst and okay at best.

2. Escape From Butcher Bay. Riddick is still cool, and this is by a wide margin my favorite part of the whole franchise.

3. Pitch Black. In anticipation of Assault on Dark Athena I eagerly watched the movie that started all this. I liked it a lot better than the Chronicles of Riddick. Riddick is predictably badass, but even though I liked the movie, I feel it was pretty medicore. Not bad, but not great either. I feel like a little exposition here and there would have gone a long way in improving this one.

So that brings me to my thoughts on the future... if they do more sequels, I would prefer it if they pretended like The Chronicles of Riddick never happened. After experiencing Escape From Butcher Bay and Pitch Black, I can safely say that's certainly what I'll be doing. I definately prefer the human Riddick who got his eyeshine in a gross prison surgery to the super-powered alien Riddick. I really, really hope that this new movie will be a prequel based on Butcher Bay.

I did care for Butcher Bay. That's why I don't want it as a movie. And I loved the Director's Cut of Chronicles of Riddick.

Also, there is no need to make a bad decision such as going over the same territory again and ignoring two movies just cuz.

That's a fair point. I just see The Chronicles of Riddick as the "black sheep" of the series and I would probably hate it if they continued down that path. It just feels so different from everything else. I mean, for example...where exactly are the Elementals and Necrobastards during Pitch Black? Not even one reference of the Underverse? TCoR and Pitch Black/Butcher Bay feel like they take place in two completely different fictional universes. To me it just sort of feels like if the sequel to Alien was patterned after Star Wars or something.

Yes. Because in a horrible prison like Butcher Bay where tomorrow isn't guaranteed... they should talk about politics and other stuff like that... makes for a great action game.
And everyone while running for their life from crazy monsters that live in the dark... they should pause and say to the camera, "Damn, these things are worse then Necromongers!"

Or you could see Pitch Black as the Hobbit. And Chronicles of Riddick as the Lord of the Rings. Or did you think it was a bit of a ripoff that the sequel to the Hobbit had no setup in the actual Hobbit besides a stupid ring.

You know, it is possible to foreshadow things for sequels or expand the viewers perception of the world without beating them over the head with it. Also, I know it's easy to be dismissive and not address the topic at hand but snide comments are pretty unnecessary, in my opinion.

Having said that, I lol'd at the bolded portion.

There are a couple of problems with comparing The Chronicles of Riddick to Lord of The Rings.

A. For starters...you're comparing The Chronicles of Riddick to Lord of The Rings.
B. The key difference here aside from quality is that The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings very clearly are part of the same universe. Going from Hobbit to LoTR you feel like what you're reading is just a natural and logical progression of what has come before. You get to see the world from a more in-depth perspective and nothing in it feels out of place. The same could be said going from Pitch Black to TCoR...with one caveat; Almost everything in TCoR feels out of place and none of it feels like a natural or logical continuation of Pitch Black.

You mean like saying, "Screw that whole interesting thing where they took Riddick out of his element and introduced him to the universe... let's just do the same thing over and over again and ignore that movie"?

Also. It isn't quite as possible to foreshadow things for a sequel... when you make a one-off movie.

So that neat little ring that turns the person invisible in the Hobbit... is logically, of course, the most powerful weapon in the entire world which a great evil has been looking for ages?

Wait... the dude that is running from the entire universe... is naturally out of his element once he is thrust into the middle of events in a crazy war in what seems to be a completely illogical move?

That's just crazy talk.

Space politics? What kind of politics should interest the audience if it happens in outer space? It doesn't look like Earth is even important in that future. It didn't work well in Star Wars, so it relied on the action and drama to carry it.
