The promise of a new Riddick continues with some cool concept art

Jul. 19, 2011by:

When Vin Diesel gave a RIDDICK update a couple months ago on his implausibly popular Facebook page (26.5 million fans), the actor seemed somewhat hesitant to slip on the goggles again -- he claimed that production could conceivably start this summer, but the budget (and his paycheck) would be stripped pretty lean.

But Diesel is still teasing fans of his intergalactic badass, this time with some nifty new concept art (above) from PITCH BLACK and CHRONICLES director David Twohy, who was also recently beating the drum about getting the third RIDDICK rolling.

A previous draft of the sequel put our our apathetic anti-hero on a barren alien planet, where he had to deal with lethal indigenous lifeforms and a crew of mercenaries before heading to his homeworld of Furya for final retribution. Of course, the story may have since changed due to budgetary concerns and the natural evolution of the process.

Diesel is in serious demand after the global box office blast of FAST FIVE, with a sixth already in the works, along with an untitled project from the writers of UNKNOWN and a family action-comedy called THE MACHINE, in which the Vin-man will play a reactivated military robot who befriends a kid. With luck, he'll also find the time, funds and motivation to give us another RIDDICK...

I hope it pulls through. I'm a huge fan of the Riddick universe and the character of Riddick himself, so I'd really like to see more done with this series.

As long as it's in the vain of Pitch Black and not Chronicles of Riddick and it's rated R.

Extra Tidbit

I've always dug Vin's short film, Multi-Facial, and wondered why the hell he hasn't taken up more challenging/versatile roles. Granted his short isn't anything stunningly profound but it evinced genuine heart and soul. The dude is naturally charming and has a fair amount of range. He was wise in using his student film as a portfolio in motion. Over the course of his very one-dimensional, if mostly entertaining filmography, I can't think of much beyond Find Me Guilty, and his small part in

Over the course of his very one-dimensional, if mostly entertaining filmography, I can't think of much beyond Find Me Guilty, and his small part in Saving Private Ryan that allowed him to branch out.

Don't let the F&F resurgence wash your ego bro, there seems to be a flicker of experimentation left in your blood so stretch out. And I don't mean throwing on another baby backpack for Disney. So take flight big guy! Don't be afraid to toy with the Riddick character, you seemed to abandon that sly wit from Pitch Black and go all stone-faced Dominic on us again in Chronicles, but don't get me wrong, I still thoroughly enjoyed the extra cheese in the sequel. Do less of the hardened, emotionless juggernaut and flex those acting chops a bit more. Try on another character outside the action genre, see if it still fits. My point is, you started it all with the best intentions. And most importantly, though I can never claim to know celebrities beyond TV interviews, you seem like a decent enough dude and that's enough for me to shamelessly call myself a fan.

Vin Diesel works hard to eliminate prejudice. Thumbs up if you agree with him that Hitler was wrong.
