Now that dire financial straits have been cleared away, the untitled third installment of the Riddick series is getting back into motion. And it’s doing so with two separate pieces of casting: Deadline reports that Battlestar Galactica‘s Katie Sackhoff will be jumping on board, just as Variety informs us of Bad Boys II actor Jordi Molla also joining. What’s more, they look to be filling those much-needed antagonist slots.
Sackhoff‘s role is described as “Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick,” while Molla gets a similar designation, that being “Santana, a mercenary who heads up an eight-man crew tasked with finding and killing Riddick.” We can expect Vin Diesel and Karl Urban to yell at them about something irrelevant, but, for what it’s worth, they’ve found two fully capable actors for these parts; my fear is that they won’t actually have anything to do. As long as they get more public attention, I guess.
David Twohy and company have once again started production on the film in Montreal, which means that the third Riddick could be hitting at the end of this year or in about a year’s time. And there’s a sentence I never really thought I’d type.
What do you make of their casting? Do you have any hopes for a third Riddick?
