How Cameo Fast & Furious Earned Vin Diesel the Rights to Riddick

However, the actor still intends to ensure the story of Riddick continues, even if he has to finance the project himself instead of relying on Universal. Diesel’s production company, One Race Films, was a victim of the “Riddick Chronicles” bomb and was underfunded. As a result, Diesel financed the project himself, turning his mortgage payments into production costs. He discussed how stressful this high-stakes situation is in LA time:

“I will never be able to convey the anxiety, frustration, fear I felt before making this movie when the funding didn’t go where it needed to be. To where the locks were put in. factory in Canada because we didn’t have enough money to move on. When I got there, I had to make use of my house.”

However, this financial maneuver was completely futile, as Universal wouldn’t let Diesel get his hands on the “Riddick” franchise even after he offered the studio $10 million for creative control. He lamented in the same “LA Times” article:

“At the time, I felt like ‘Riddick’ was being held in a cellar. We weren’t allowed to get creative with that project that we loved. They said, ‘We can’t stand it. The idea of ​​this movie succeeds elsewhere. So the answer is no. ‘”
