Ok, so almost two years ago Vin Diesel said that Universal wanted another Riddick movie and then… nothing.
Well, now it seems Riddick is coming back. In style.
Diesel has take to Instagram to tell the fans that not only is there a fourth Riddick movie (fifth if you include the animated Dark Fury) called Furia in the works and that’s not all as a TV series dubbed Merc City is happening too.
“Last night our company had a party to launch our TV division,” Diesel wrote. “MERC CITY is a show that will follow the Mercs and Bounty Hunters of the Riddick Universe. Next Month, DT (David Twohy) begins writing the next Chapter in the Chronicles of Riddick… FURIA.”
Twohy wrote and directed 2000’s Pitch Black, 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick, and 2013’s Riddick. as well as the two animated Riddick stories, Dark Fury and Blindsided.
We at FTN are really happy about this because, frankly, we have a very big soft spot for the Riddick movies and we look forward to the story continuing.
Are we on our own? Let us know.
