First Look at Katee Sackhoff + Gnarly Alien Creature in New 'Riddick'
Not to be confused, Katee Sackhoff is not the "gnarly alien creature", rather, we have a photo of each them from this sci-fi movie. Vin Diesel has been keeping fans up-to-date on his Facebook page (via ComingSoon) with photos from the new Riddick sequel, which has been shooting for the last few months up in Montreal. We've seen some shots of Diesel in costume as a Furyan again, but not too much else interesting until now. He recently put out a shot of Katee Sackhoff as one of the Mercs after him, as well as a brief look at one of the nasty dog-like creatures, potentially known as "mud demons", he encounters on the planet. See below!
While not specifically identified, Diesel says of the 'mud demon' creature: "Too focused on the captive, the bounty… And when they realize what is out there in the dark… it's too late." Pretty damn cool looking, but I want to see more from this that actually makes me excited for their potential return to its Pitch Black roots.
As for "Battlestar Galactica" star Katee Sackhoff playing "Dahl" in this, Diesel states in regards to her photo: "Not all Mercs are spineless… in fact some are downright sexy… GRRRR." Adding that "the talent she brought to the new Chronicles of Riddick… added magic to the film and the process." That's great to hear.
Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick director David Twohy returns to write and direct the sequel Riddick starring Vin Diesel. Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick 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. Universal has not set a release date yet, but we expect it sometime in 2013. Twohy and Diesel have been shooting up in Montreal since January.
