Production on the latest Riddick Sequel starring Vin Diesel, was shut down earlier this week due to "serious cash flow issues" reports TMZ.
Michel Trudel, the owner of the Montreal studio where the new movie is being shot, says everyone on the set had to be kicked off because Diesel's production company failed to pay them on time.
Similarly, several members of the crew have reportedly not been paid in over two weeks and "are very concerned about getting their money".
Trudel says he's "confident the situation will be resolved soon" and production is expected to resume once these financial issues are resolved.
