Vin Diesel loves to tease out projects on his Facebook page. "Early Riddick concept art... first frame of a 2D Motion Choreography Study. Grrrr...The Furian... left for dead.." Vin is talking about the David Twoy directed sequel to Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick called Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking (2011).
Official Synopsis: In the upcoming third installment of the popular sci-fi franchise, Riddick get's betrayed by the Necromonger army and is left for dead on a desolate planet. He has to fight for survival against alien predators and must deal with two squads of bounty hunters, who are coming after him to collect the bounty for the most wanted man in the galaxy.
The drawing by Patrick Tatopoulos is amazing for its sense of despair and isolation. Riddick is broken and defeated lying covered in muck. Then, a vicious looking creature stalks him ready to bite. Truly amazing.
The rest of the images were screen caps from a video shown to investors by "OneRace Films" Diesel's production company.
