• With a title like The Prince, die-hard Bruce Willis fans might worry that he’s decided to go from blue collar to blue blood. Thankfully, it’s a little misleading. Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan (American Heist) will tell the story of a retired Las Vegas mobster who must return to the city when he discovers that his teenage daughter is missing. Willis will play the man who has been cautiously awaiting the return of the mob enforcer. Filming will begin in New Orleans in October. Willis’s next scheduled release is Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which hits theaters Aug. 22, 2014. [Deadline]

September 6 sees the release of Riddick, a sequel-slash-kinda-sorta-reboot of the franchise that began in the R-rated space-horror gem Pitch Black and continued in the PG-13 actioner The Chronicles of Riddick. The new film marks a return to the series’ roots. Once again, Vin Diesel’s anti-hero finds himself marooned on a planet and bedeviled by various threats: Bounty hunters, vengeful old enemies, the occasional creatures.
In the exclusive image above, you can spot four of the film’s stars: Katee Sackhoff, Matthew Noble, Vin Diesel, and Vin Diesel’s muscles. Expect to learn more about Riddick next week, when Diesel and writer-director David Twohy headline the Riddick panel at Comic-Con.
