Trivia that mentions this person:
The Chronicles of Riddick: Unrated Director's Cut [2004]
  • After the original Pitch Black proved a success on DVD, Universal became interested in making a sequel. Writer/director David Twohy wrote the screenplays for not one, but three sequels. He and Vin Diesel put them into separate leather binders and presented them to Universal, along with the key for the first binder.
  • Linus Roache originally auditioned for the part of Vaako, but David Twohy immediately saw him instead as the Purifier.
  • The Purifier's line, "I've done unbelievable things in the name of a faith that was never my own," was not originally in the script. It was improvised by Linus Roache and David Twohy kept it in the film.
    Riddick [2013]
  • Vin Diesel wanted the movie to be shot on 35mm film, but due to the films low budget paired with large number of visual effect shots, the movie had to be shot digitally. As a compromise, director David Twohy added a subtle film grain effect throughout the film.
  • Keri Hilson auditioned for the role of Dahl. The role went to Katee Sackhoff but David Twohy was so impressed with Hilson's charisma that wrote a small role for her in the film.
