Another Riddick movie on the way?

According to Vin Diesel there is...


Vin Diesel may be returning to the role that made him a star, if rumours that another Riddick movie is being prepped prove true.

According to the gravel-voiced star's Facebook page: "the Riddick team is in New Zealand location scouting already... that's exciting".

Perhaps Universal is looking to fill the franchise gap currently left by the faltering Bourne 4, or maybe Diesel and director David Twohy have got a killer concept.

Pitch Black was a breakout hit for director and star, but sequel The Chronicles of Riddick disappointed with its overblown space mythos.

If they can get back to the gritty basics of Pitch Black (or match the awesomeness of the Butcher Bay videogame), count us in!

      I'm reminded of a certain review of Pitch Black 2 which went along the lines of "Chronicles of Riddick? - Chronic & Ridiculous more like" - priceless, enough said really.

      I always found the Riddick character to be filled with a lot of potential. Pitch Black barely touched the surface of the character and the Chronicles film just came out flat to me. A third installment, perhaps and origins story might be exactly what existing fans and potential fans need

      I saw the Chronicles of Riddick movie first (I would really like that title explained - Chronicles are more than just one story right? It's like a synonym for a series, isn't it?). Loved it, so watched Pitch Black. Whilst Pitch Black is better, I still enjoyed Chronicles - the costume and set design was just brilliant. If they do another one, I personally hope it combines the best features of both movies...

      They called it "Chronicles" because it was supposed to be a trilogy, but poor box office returns killed it. I really liked it.

      Pitch Black was over rated and the chronicles truly awful. vin diesel is an awful actor with no charisma or star quality whatsoever. Even if the third one was actually any good (which it won't be) it will not do well as people will have been put off by the second movie.
