Bits and Pieces...

Speaking of films we were never quite sure would happen, David Twohy recently sat down with Total Film to discuss the long-gestating Riddick. The filmmaker discussed the freedom of an R rating.

    If you make it PG-13, then you have to make concessions, and thatís what happened on The Chronicles of Riddick where we had to downplay a lot of our action sequences and remove a lot of the blood. We found it was tying our hands, so we vowed not to do that.

With the toothless PG-13, Chronicles proved a box office disappointment and it took Twohy and Vin Diesel several years to get Riddick made. But Twohy says theyíve figured out how to work with the lower budget.

    Had Universal said to us, ďletís roll over, letís pick it up right at the end of the last movieĒ and funded it, we would have ventured into the Necromonger underverse and we would have had a big The Lord of the Rings-style movie on our hands. But that didnít happen, so cleverly Vin and I got the rights back and produced it ourselves on a smaller scale. That said, it still looks like a big movie. I think the audience will see the tip of the hat to Pitch Black, but they wonít feel claustrophobic.

Riddick lands September 6.
