The next Riddick film gets an official plot synopsis

May. 7, 2010by:

First, you'll be happy to hear that the third RIDDICK movie is no longer titled--CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK: DEAD MAN STALKING. For right now, the tentative title is just RIDDICK.

Now with that out of the way, there's finally an official plot synopsis for the film:

"Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction."

It felt like it hadn't really been that long since CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, but that film came out in 2004. I'm surprised the third installment wasn't put together sooner. But it makes sense, PITCH BLACK came out early in 2000. This is one of those series that most likely needs a bit of space inbetween so the stories don't suffer. PITCH and RIDDICK were both decent films.

I'm wondering how these new alien predators are going to look. Hopefully David Twohy does good on this one as well.

Extra Tidbit: Sometimes I imagine what Dwayne Johnson would be like in these films instead of Vin Diesel. There's just times when I have a hard time watching Diesel.

The Rock as Riddick?

No. LoL. Vin has that crazy, brooding voice, and its natural. He does this role perfectly and its my favorite role of his.

But I do think they should get Dwayne in on this franchise. He could either be another bad ass bounty hunter or he could be Riddick's long lost evil brother. Seriously that would be kewl. Either way, Dwayne needs to be a villian.

Anyways, I'm stoked for this film

Vinny as Riddick = one of the most perfect casting choices ever. I dig The Rock but this wouldn't fit him. I would LOVE to see him cast as Riddick's foe, though... a girl can dream...

If Ya Smell What Twohy's Cookin'

The Rock needs to shake that stupid kid's movie image. I think if he got serious, it'd be a good fight scene in a movie with Vinny-Boy.

I mean.. does anybody not have a hard time watching The Rock? I'm pretty sure if The Rock was Riddick we'd get at least one people's elbow in his fight scenes dropped on an alien and a lot of corny eyebrow raising for no reason.

The third movie should be closer to the tone of pitch black. Man, that was a badass movie. Bountyhunters and Riddick could run around in the dark killing each other and in turn hunted down by alien predators. Won't that be cool.

I like that they are seeking a good balance between Pitch and Chronicles. Both films were good, but they had some glaring good and weak points. Now that the two are coming together, hopefully all of the good elements will overshadow any weak. Personally, Riddick is one of my favorite sci-fi characters, and he just wouldn't be Riddick if played by anyone else. It's like having someone other than Stallone play Rambo. But, I'm glad to see another film, because the Riddick universe is definately a

This sounds like a cool premise. I didn't know that was the title they were thinking of, but I'm glad they got rid of it too! It almost sounded too much like a video game title, or some cheesy B-Movie title!

Sounds like the start of Chronicles with the hunters again. Just this time it will take a hour or so and will describe in great detail his duration of time there in training, and then he return to Furyan for the last hour of the movie, or less then that.

I'm totally IN for this one but...

"Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction."

Now there I see a problem... wasn't Furya already destroyed and EVERY Furyan killed by the time of The Chronicles Of Riddick? Ok.. maybe this is some sort of prequel..

But then again, HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT HE WAS FROM FURYA...

I'm confused here...
