Back in September, we brought you the news about Karl Urban (Dredd, Star Trek), who portrayed Vaako, the villainous Necromonger Commander in 2004′s  The Chronicles of Riddick returning with Vin Diesel for the third installment of David Twohy‘s franchise.

Now, B-D reports that Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall) and the always lovely and super-cool Katee Sackhoff (Longmire, Growl) have been offered roles in the forthcoming Riddick sequel. While no information was available on Woodbine’s role, its said that Sackhoff would portray “Dahl”, a Nordic merc tracking Riddick.

In addition to Woodbine and Sackhoff, the site reports that Andreas Apergis (Durham County) and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption) have also been offered roles in the film.


Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.

Riddick is slated to hit theaters in 2012.
