Vin Diesel gears up for the fourth Riddick film
Vin Diesel in Riddick
Vin Diesel is on a sequel spree. Even as he is gearing up for the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and Fast X this summer, the actor has lined up the fourth instalment of the Riddick franchise. Titled Riddick: Furya, the new film is written and directed by David Twohy. He first collaborated with Diesel on Pitch Black (2000), and continued the hit sci-fi franchise with two sequels, The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) and Riddick (2013).
Diesel will star in and produce the new film under his One Race Films banner, alongside Samantha Vincent, who will also produce. Coming a decade since the third instalment, Furya sees the protagonist, Riddick, return to his home-world, a place he barely remembers, and one he fears might be left in the ruins by the Necromongers. Announcing the project, Twohy said in a statement, “Our legion of fans have demanded it for years, and now we’re finally ready to honour their call-to-action with Riddick: Furya. My collaboration with Vin and One Race has spanned 20 fruitful years, as together we’ve created three movies, two video games, an anime production, and motion comics for the internet. This new big-screen event will see a return to Riddick’s homeworld, where we finally get to explore Riddick’s genesis.”
Diesel recently had a launch party for the trailer of Fast X in downtown Los Angeles.
