Awesome New Battle Concept Art for RIDDICK
Vin Diesel and director David Twohy have released this incredibly badass new image from The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking, which is said to have a tone that's closer to the original film Pitch Black. The art shows off a pretty awesome looking battle scene from the film, and it will be so cool to see this showdown brought to life on the big screen. What do you all think of the concept art?
Here's what Diesel had to say on his Facebook page...
In the spirit of Creative Sundays... I asked the director to send a key frame that I could post it for you.
Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to film. The road to the "R" rating, that so many of you were vocal about, has been a long one. The advantage however, (never empower the negatives) was that we were allowed a really extensive preproduction process. The art work is so good, the artists have really outdone themselves in illustrating this world at it's early stage.
When this film comes to the screen... know that you willed it into being!
I got two meetings today that I have been prepping for... one with the Director and another one with the head of the studio to discuss casting and the 2012 release date. Like always, I appreciate having your voice present in these meetings.
Here's a early synopsis for the film:
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) 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.
