Some great news has come out about ‘Riddick’. filming is getting close and casting has officially begun! Right now we know that Director David Twohy and Vin Diesel are saying that we can expect something different than The Chronicles of Riddick, but along the same lines as Pitch Black.

Here are the roles they are currently casting:
– Boss Johns
– Santana
– The sexy female merc Dahl
– The smug commander Krone
There is also a chance that Karl Urban might return for a couple of scenes in his past role of Vaako.

Here is what moviehole has learned so far about the movie’s plot:

“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.”
