The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking Begins Casting!





Well I guess budget and rating woes have been worked out because word has hit the interwebs that casting has officially begun for the third film in the Riddick franchise, The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.

The news comes from MovieHole, who reports that casting director Anne McCarthy (Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, Insidious) has begun scouting for a few supporting roles, including Boss Johns, Santana, the sexy female merc Dahl, and the smug commander Krone. Hit up the link below for descriptions of each.

Boss Johns is the father of William J. Johns (Cole Hauser) from the first film. He is contacted by the mercs and captures Riddick - with help from Santana, his subordinate - to find out what exactly happened to his son.

Synopsis
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.

I enjoy the pulp aspects of this series. I will admit I didn't particularly like Chronicles but I have not seen the director's cut. I'm hoping this new one will be a tighter, sharper story. I also hope it will be a hard R.

This is good news. There needs to be more darker sci-fi.

Definitely sounds like a return to the darker side of the Riddick universe ala PITCH BLACK. Although some people don't like CHRONICLES as much for some reason, what's not to love about SPACE CONAN? The Director's Cut makes CHRONICLES so much better.
