MPAA Officially Gives 'Riddick' Sequel the R-Rating Everyone Wanted
While there are plenty of fans anticipating another sequel in the Fast & Furious franchise, there are some more passionate fans who have been waiting a longer time to see Vin Diesel in Riddick, the sequel to the sci-fi action thrillers Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. David Twohy is returning to the director's chair and Diesel will be joined by "Battlestar Galactica" star Katee Sackhoff and Star Trek and Dredd actor Karl Urban. Diesel has always said he wanted to make an R-rated sequel, and even took a paycut to make sure it got made. Now Collider has learned the MPAA has announced the film as R-rated. Read on!
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. Stay tuned for more updates on this anticipated sequel. Happy?

Awesome stuff, now I'd just like to know about a release date.

I still prefer him as an anti-hero, which I missed in Riddick I. We've seen too many one-man army movies. I'm afraid this one is going to follow the macho-poorly written path of Riddick I.

"Star Trek and Dredd actor Karl Urban". Or more relevantly, Chronicles of Riddick actor Karl Urban.

Very happy. Whatever one may think of his acting ability (personally, he's better than several actors currently getting work), you can't fault his dedication to this franchise, or his work in general. Few actors put their money where their mouth is, to get a project of theirs done in a manner they feel strongly about.
