First Look: Vin Diesel Back in Action as Riddick!
Remember the year 2000? Sure you do, it was a fairly decent year for movies! One in particular that comes to mind was a sci-fi horror film starring a yet to be known New Yorker who’s career would blow up into mega-action stardom! Yep you guessed it right, I’m talking about Pitch Black (2000). You remember four years later when we were all served up a sequel called The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)? Sure you do, it vastly differed from its predecessor in both theme and tone when the horror element was dropped completely? Remember the awesome sequel that followed? No? Yeah me neither… We were told about one in the works and even teased about it over the years, but that was about as far as it went, talks and negations. And eight years later what do we have for show? Well I’m glad you asked because we’re finally getting a third entry in the series! And even better there’s proof! Below is the first official still of actor Vin Diesel in full Riddick gear, which was shared by his official Facebook page.
Little is known about when we’ll be seeing this flick hit the sliver screen at the moment but here’s the synopsis: “Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.”
As of right now the official cast list includes: Vin Diesel. Karl Urban. Katee Sackhoff. And Jordi Molla. With Director David Twohy set to direct.
Extra Tidbit: with nearly eight years since its last sequel do you think the series will be able to muster up enough steam to get the fans back in the seats?
