Vin Diesel risked home to finance new `Riddick` film

London: Actor Vin Diesel put his house at risk to complete production on his new film `Riddick`.

The 46-year-old star, who has played anti-hero Richard B Riddick in two movies - 2000`s `Pitch Black` and 2004`s `The Chronicles of Riddick`, is now reprising his role in the franchise`s latest movie, due out next month, reported Contactmusic.

"I had to leverage my house. If we didn`t finish the film, I would be homeless," he said.

But Diesel insists the risk makes the him even more proud of the finished product.

"It`s a strange and unique sense of gratification, and it`s not like any film I`ve done in the last 10 years," he added.
