Vin Diesel‘s prediction was apparently only a few months off. Earlier this year, the Fast Five star said he and writer/director David Twohy could start shooting a new Riddick movie as early as this summer. Summer is almost over and while shooting hasn’t begun, it seems that casting has.

We don’t have word of a green light yet, but Vin Diesel has posted a new piece of concept art, which you can see in full below. Read More »
