- Judi Dench's dress was made from crushed Swarovski crystal.
It was shipped to theatres under the name "D Shoes".
According to the Newcastle (Australia) Herald, Australian Rhiana Griffith auditioned to reprise her role of "Jack" from Pitch Black (2000) (renamed "Kyra" for The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)). It came down to top-level auditions. Vin Diesel was behind Griffith but told her she had to "toughen up". Griffith got a trainer and learned kickboxing but only had three weeks to prepare for auditions. Alexa Davalos got the role. Griffith did give her voice to The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury (2004) (V), the animated short which is intended to bridge the years between Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004).
Vin Diesel wanted Judi Dench to play Aereon, and went to great lengths to get her. A long-time fan of Dench, he had her dressing room filled with bouquets of flowers, and also advised her that they could not begin casting the movie until she agreed to accept the role.
After the original Pitch Black (2000) 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.
