January 28th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

​Everyone know by now that Vin Diesel loves Facebook, and to reveal info on his upcoming projects on his official page. This time on his page he’s revealed that Universal Pictures wants to develop a sequel to 2013′s Riddick:

“I’m just excited, and happy, and I’m shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There’s no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated ‘R,’ and to do it with such a low budget. It’s a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much. Yeah, I’m excited, and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one.”

You can check out the video, in which Vin shows off some of his sweet dance moves as well, below.

The Riddick comments begin at the 3:12 mark.

The third in the franchise, 2013′s Riddick ended up with $98 million globally.
