Vin Diesel Says Universal Wants Another Riddick
During a particularly musical Facebook entry...

28 January 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Vin Diesel

We know that Vin Diesel likes to offer entertaining Facebook updates, particularly when he’s got good news for his fans. For his latest, he’s added a musical accompaniment and shown off his moves even as he reports that, thanks to solid DVD sales for Riddick, Universal is interested in developing another film for the character. Check out Vin in all his singing/dancing glory below.

 

Of course, there has been no official statement from Universal yet, but Diesel does like to drop little nuggets like these to shove the conversation on and drum up some additional demand. Not every project he talks about comes to fruition (he’s still trying to make his Hannibal film), but others, such as his mentions of talks with Marvel, have proved pointers to jobs like voicing Groot in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Riddick didn’t exactly enjoy glowing reviews when it arrived last year, but it has clearly managed to earn enough that early discussions, at least, are under way about another entry in the franchise. Diesel is, of course, still involved with Fast And The Furious 7, which is being overhauled in the wake of co-star Paul Walker’s tragic death.

Your Comments

I really enjoyed Riddick. I think Empire overplayed the sexism angle, and to give it 2 stars on DVD was, on the whole, bonkers. I think number 4's direction is pretty clear: get Riddick back home to Furyon. Do not dilute. Do not redeem. Close out the mythology. More
