Vin Diesel has unveiled a few more images from the currently-in-production Riddick, giving us our first look at Katee Sackhoff and a gnarly looking creature. Diesel mentioned in the posting of the image that Sackoff wrapped shooting on the film early this morning. She plays a mercenary named Dahl, but she’s doing her best Starbuck impression from Battlestar Galactica in this new image. Granted, both projects are in the sci-fi realm so we were probably already thinking about her Battlestar Galactica character anyway, but the wardrobe here is very similar. The third installment of the series that began with Pitch Black was followed by 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick finds our antihero left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that’s infested with alien predators. Riddick activates an emergency beacon that alerts mercenaries to come collect their bounty

Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Karl Urban, Jordi Molla and David Bautista.

Here’s the synopsis for Riddick:

The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000′s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004′s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.
