The hell? I could have sworn Riddick flopped? I guess doubling the budget and strong DVD sales are good enough for a sequel?
in Diesel has taken to his official Facebook page once again, this time to announce that Universal Pictures wants to develop a sequel to his 2013 film Riddick. Here's his exact quote:
"I'm just excited, and happy, and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There's no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated 'R,' and to do it with such a low budget. It's a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much. Yeah, I'm excited, and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one."
doubling the budget? thought it cost way less than chronicles of riddick? I thought it was pretty decent.
I meant the movie made double it's budget. I think the film grossed $95m worldwide and it cost $40m to make before marketing? So that is basically just doubling the initial investment but I guess the DVD sales made enough of a difference.
you meant the it it that way. Well the movie was pretty cool. It didn't try to be too ambitious like chronicles of riddick
