Back in October, actor Vin Diesel revealed Riddick was nearing the start of production, although the sequel was shut down weeks later because of cash flow issues. Now it seems all has been resolved, and Riddick will resume shooting on December 28.

Michel Trudel, who owns the Montreal studio where Riddick was shooting, booted the cast and crew off the set when Vin Diesel's production company, One Race Films, fell behind on payments to the studio. Now Michel Trudel says the production company has paid up, and he will allow the sequel to continue production. It isn't known if the production company took on a new financing partner for Riddick, or where the new funds came from.

David Twohy is directing Riddick from his own screenplay. Vin Diesel returns as the title character, and Karl Urban reprises his Vaako role from The Chronicles of Riddick. We reported last month that Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Andreas Apergis, and Dave Bautista were offered roles in Riddick, although it isn't known if they have accepted yet.

Riddick was released September 6th, 2013 and stars Vin Diesel, Jordi Mollà, Matthew Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Conrad Pla. The film is directed by David Twohy.

    @ollie Just because something is complex doesn't mean it's good. I'll give it this. In the future, it's definitely a cult classic.

    Finally!! get this mother on the road again,.. Chronicles is a more complex story than pitch black,.. some people is confused by this and think its too much to handle, and cut down chronicles.. but why not embrace both as part of the Riddick universe, and enjoy it for what both are.. my fave is actually chronicles.. insanely good..

    Last comment means watching sports is boring, rather play them instead.

    @TheFury I do like other things as well, old Star Trek and the new one, BSG and the old version. Star Wars and so on, so back off at least I don't tell you want you should like.
    Some of the horror TV shows are garbage, it would be a boring world if everyone liked the same things.
    Hell I think all sports are a waste of time to watch 'rather play'.

    @zenttox Right on.

    @Mutant If you like Chronicles of Riddick then you have no taste whatsoever.

    @zenttox if you don't like the franchise then I suggest you stop watching it. I liked the second film as much the first, different planets, different beings mix the two into this would be more than sweet.

    With Chronicles of Riddick being an absolute flaming pile of elephant excrement, I suspect that this will be just as horrible if not worse!

    How do you take a movie like Pitch Black with it's beautiful cinematography and interesting concept with an amazing cast into something as retarded and pathetic as Necromonger's?

    I don't understand it and will never understand the stupidity of David Twohy. You have a guy that started off with a low budget, and went insane when he was given a larger budget for the sequel and complete ruined everything that was good about Riddick.

    What a shame. I was hoping this movie would've stayed on hold INDEFINITELY!

    So glad to see this. I've really been looking forward to this next installment, hopefully it'll be up on the same level that Pitch Black was.

    This is one movie i don't want to see suffer from low budget problems.

    Seriously, it's one of those sci-fi franchises that really strive to create something new. The creativity in this franchise is mindnumbing.

    Man, this guy is really pushing this sh*t. As long as he doesn't try to revive the Pacifier. I'm good.
