Katee Sackhoff and Jordi Mollà are both in talks to join Riddick for director David Twohy.

Katee Sackhoff will portray the female lead, a mercenary named Dahl who is tracking Riddick, played by Vin Diesel. Jordi Mollà will play Santana, who heads up another mercenary crew searching for Riddick.

David Twohy is directing Riddick from his own original screenplay. Production recently started back up in Montreal, after a two-month hiatus due to financial issues.
