The other day the world went a bit crazy about the cast of Iron Man 3… via a casting call for the movie. It really surprised me that so many folks were fixated on the info from a few months ago. I didn’t quite catch on to the fact that this info was something special… I figured back then that it was taken for granted who is coming back to the third movie of the Iron Man franchise.
With that said and that reasoning, I think I know the title of the upcoming Chronicles of Riddick sequel that’s due out sometime in 2013. Back in December of 2011, the casting call for the Riddick sequel said that the title of the movie is
The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.
The casting call repeatedly references that title, so that’s my guess to the working title, if not THE movie title.
Riddick: Dead Man Stalking is being directed & written by David Twohy. He wrote and direct one of my recommended favorites, A Perfect Getaway and the man behind Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick.
The cast includes the obvious, the man himself, Vin Diesel.
Other cast included in Riddick: Dead Man Stalking includes Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, & Dave Bautista. If you’re wondering, yes, Karl Urban is “reprising” his role of Vaako from the 2nd Riddick movie. (I really liked that character)
This movie is a sequel to Pitch Black and not the other Riddick movie, so be prepared to have your mind twisted up a bit by that one! And maybe head out and grab a copy of Pitch Black to prepare yourself. It’s an excellent movie from the popcorn fun scale! That’s for sure!
The outline of the story is as follows:
“Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Vin Diesel) 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.”
To be honest, I can’t wait for this movie. I’m a huge Riddick fan. I love his… “management style!”

Now let’s see who runs with this?
