Vin Diesel has provided his fans with some updates to "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking" by posting a video on his Facebook page. In the video, he and director David Twohy answer people's questions about the upcoming project.
Responding to a question about which film the third will share more similarity with, Twohy says, "The movie itself is gonna be a lot like Pitch Black because of the money involved." He adds, "We're gonna be lean and we're going to go quick and it's going to be a cool movie, I can tell you that."
Also in the video, the filmmaker who directed the first two films in the sci-fi franchise declares his commitment to attain an R-rating. "We want to maintain our R rating at any cost, and it's cost us a lot," Twohy states, with Diesel supporting him, "We're committed to going R."
