Vin Diesel will star in a third movie in the David Twohy-helmed Riddick franchise, Variety said Friday.
“Vin Diesel is going back to the future to topline and produce a third chapter in the “Chronicles of Riddick” franchise….Plot details are being kept under wraps. But insiders say the third outing will hew closer in tone to the cult hit Pitch Black…” the trade mag writes.
Despite being panned by critics, Lionsgate’s The Chronicles of Riddick grossed over $100 million at the international box office and spawned a popular video game. Diesel recently signed on to reprise his role in the forthcoming fifth Fast & Furious film.
