Riddick may be able to fight aliens, but he isn’t able to fight budget deficits quite as easily. The cast and crew were locked out of the studio late last month when the studio’s owner was tired of not getting his paycheck, and it seemed like the movie might not be happening after all. Recently, the money has been found, and production will restart shortly. My guess is the money was under a rock. It’s easy to lose things when they’re under rocks.
The new Riddick features the titular character sporting muscles and fighting aliens. Production will restart at the end of December, so we might be seeing the new movie late next year.[Via /Film]
