Get your 1st look at Riddick 3's monsters in new concept art

Vin Diesel has once again updated us on the status of Riddick 3 and released another piece of concept art, which—if you look closely—reveals some of the potential monsters Riddick and the band of mercenaries will be facing in the film.

We know that monsters are going to be prevalent again, as in Pitch Black, due to last month's big, honking, spoilerific storyline update.

Interestingly, Diesel has taken to his Facebook page again to post about casting and a 2012 release date, but if you head over to the FB link now that info no longer appears, which means that Diesel and/or his PR agency must have edited them off the status. Luckily, Latino Review grabbed the comments before they were taken down.

In the spirit of Creative Sundays...I asked the director to send a key frame that I could post it for you.

Concept art and Key frames allow a production to explore possibilities before actually committing to the film. The road to the "R" rating, that so many of you were vocal about, has been a long one. The advantage however, (never empower the negatives) was that we were allowed a really extensive preproduction process. The art work so good, the artists have really outdone themselves in illustrating this world at [its] early stage.

When this film comes to the screen...know that you willed it into being!

I got two meetings today that I have been prepping with the Director and another one with the head of the studio to discuss casting and the 2012 release date. Like always, I appreciate having your voice present in these meetings.

P.S. Share your thoughts...casting, release date, mythology or anything else. It's Sunday and we are, at the very least, allowed to be creative in thought.

The concept art seems to indicate that Riddick 3 is headed toward a hard R rating and keeping its bloody storyline. What do you think of this new piece?
