And just to think - the movie had been supposedly shut down just a few short months ago!
Last we heard about the long-anticipated Riddick sequel, Battlestar Galactica alum Katee Sackhoff had been cast as the lead opposite Vin Diesel in the upcoming movie!
Now, production has officially started up on the Riddick Flick, and Vin posted a photo (above) of himself in character on his Facebook page, along with the following caption:

The franchise that kicked off Vin Diesel's career is getting another addition, a third film in the Riddick series.
Having been on Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff knows how to do science fiction — which could be one of the reasons she's been chosen to play opposite Vin Diesel for part three of the chronicles!
She'll be playing Dayl, a nordic mercenary after Diesel's Riddick. We also hear that Karl Urban has signed back on for Vaako!
