Fact I have always regarded the franchise ” Riddick ” as a developing mythology and, in imagination the following films . and yes, it seems to me that when she appeared in the film , I replied to the request of fans. Actually , I have done or nearly completed 3 promises made in social networks: Letty returned ( Michelle Rodriguez ) to what people asked for four and a half years ago , raised Riddick and his mythology , and removed the ” Hannibal ” – a promise I’m not completely fulfilled , but be sure to do it . ”

How hard were you combine the work of the actor and producer in the same project ?

“I’m trying to create an atmosphere in which , coming to the set , we all turn into our characters . When you’re on the court, everything should revolve around your character , and you concentrate to the maximum. Each actor’s own approach , but as for me, I should be very composed. So, if I’m on the site and got used to the role , I do not think as a producer . If I looked at the site and is not busy in the scene itself , is not wearing a suit, not in makeup , then I I can already act as a producer . During this time I was quite tricky because if our efforts were in vain , I would have lost the house . All I earned in my life , I have invested in the production of this film. stakes were really high and I really wanted to answer the call of fans stories about the revival of Riddick , so the only way in which I would be able to carry out this project – to take a loan against the house . ”

At the time, I just finished working with Dwayne Johnson in ‘ Fast and the Furious 5 ” , so I knew that with wrestlers can arrange a grand performance . I was sure of it . first fight scene between me and Batista was not like Dwayne . Level choreography was the same , but in order to take a similar scene in ” Fast and the Furious 5 ” we needed a week . Duane and any other will tell you that it was one of the toughest scenes we ‘ve ever shot , because it was involved not only the physical component . this scene was a lot of emotion, and emotion is added stress and tension. The scene is the fight between me and Batista was funny , but she did not claim anything super – serious. ”

David Twohy says he wants to shoot two more films about Riddick . Do you want it?
