Vin Diesel made a post to his Facebook page where he announced that they will be able to make a true R-rated Riddick movie….if he works for scale. That basically means he’ll be working for peanuts. This news doesn’t come as much of a shock based on Universal’s recent hesitation in giving large sums of money to R-rated genre movies. Here’s his actual post from his Facebook page:
D T the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch… in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the “Find me Guilty” experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world)…
Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit… but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place… called Riddick.
Now, I need to hear from Our collective… you.
