Never knew about Dark Fury, I'll look into that; might fill a few gaps!
Well the plot description IMDB has says he will be going back to Furya and if so it could lead to some new developments. But if they do that then I'm sure it'll be every bit as grandoise as the second and it will be interesting to see Riddicks 'homeworld' and what exactly takes him there. I just love Riddicks animalistic, and dangerous personality (best seen when he stares down the beast in the jail) and I hope they play on that too and bring back the bounty hunter Toombs, who was so inept its funny.
I actually kinda hope Toombs comes back, too. He's good comic relief, which plays well opposite Riddick's stoic ass. In the movie Toombs is of course left in the cage between the two hellhounds and it's ambiguous as to whether he survived, but if I remember correctly from the book, he gets mauled and eaten a bit more violently (Damn, I wish Chronicles wasn't PG-13. There's some much more gruesome parts in the book that I think they actually shot or at least prepared and intended to shoot, but got changed for whatever reason...) I dunno, might be kinda cheesy if he comes back, though. Maybe have him show up for a brief while for some humor and then have him get suddenly and violently slaughtered.. haha.. that would work!
I really hope Kyra comes back, though. I think she's a great actress, Alexa Davalos. great vulnerability, but still powerful. It'd be a real shame if she's not in it. I actually watched a few other movies because she was in them (Feast of Love, The Mist, and Clash of the Titans was terrible, but she's in it). Okay, so MAYBE I have a little bit of a boyish crush... so SUE me.. heh
That's good news, the primal aspect of Riddick is definitely his main characteristic. In COR you generally only see it come out when he enters the prison and is once more among people like him. Not as cool or dangerous as him though.
Nice find. I read a script review a many months ago and it said pretty much the same stuff. Some things might have been adjusted since then, though. I skipped the "spoiler" section on that moviehole page. Figure I should save some stuff for a surprise. heh. It will definitely be fun to see what faces start popping up for the other roles!! I think the movies have been cast really well to this point. And casting is very important, I think.

Ah, yeah, I didn't know what was going on there, but you might be right. It does kind of look like he's brutally killing someone.. haha! Yeah, Vin posted it on Facebook. God-f**[email protected] I can't wait for this movie!!!
I watched one of the Fast and the Furious movies on TV last night just so I could pretend he was Riddick.. haha.
I wish IMDB would update the page.. it sounds like they're filming now. Vin said the first stop in is Canada, which is where they filmed a lot of Chronicles. Or maybe that's just the schedule and they still haven't started yet...
[Edit: Oh, okay.. at the bottom of the page it says that casting is underway... sweet, have to look out for that info..]
Uh, come again? Are you asking if this new film they're working on will be a prequel to Pitch Black? No, it never was planned as that. The prequel to Pitch Black is the first video game, I believe. Escape From Butcher Bay. The new film will pick up where Chronicles left off (more or less).
And yeah, I really don't understand the hate towards The Chronicles of Riddick. The character didn't change. They're very precise about keeping the character the way it should be. It's a different kind of movie from Pitch Black (sci-fi/horror/drama). It's more of a sci-fi/action/adventure. The only flaw of Chronicles was that they had to go PG-13.
Someone had posted a synopsis early last year in here and it implied the next Riddick film would be a prequel (ie before planet/people Furyan was destroyed), hence my fvcking question. "Is it still planned on being a prequel?"
Probably because Chronicles was a shitty action movie and Riddick went from being some bad-ass killer to hero of the galaxy. An R rating wouldn't have helped Chronicles all that much, some more blood and gore can't help a flawed story and writing.
