While production has been shut down in Montreal, we did a little digging and have landed some potential casting news for Universal Pictures' Riddick, which is being directed by franchise creator David Twohy. We're being told that offers were made to Andreas Apergis, Katee Sackhoff (White Noise 2: The Light, Growl, The Haunting in Georgia), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall, Devil) and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption).
Apergis would play "Krone", commander of the dark theocracy. Sackhoff would pay "Dahl", a Nordic merc tracking Riddick.
If signed, they would join Vin Diesel and Karl Urban in the R-rated sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick.
