Vin Diesel gives an update on the next Riddick movie

05.24.2011

Some news for RIDDICK fans -- it sounds like the goggled intergalactic badass is finally on his way back.

Alas, there's a caveat, as smooth-skulled star Vin Diesel explains on his wildly popular Facebook page:

D T [David Twohy] the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch... in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the "Find me Guilty" experience (which I wouldn't have changed for the world)...

Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit... but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place... called Riddick.

Now, I need to hear from Our collective... you.

An R-rated Riddick adventure, and all we have to do is get the Vin-man to get in the headspace and work cheap (and likely figure out a sweet backend deal)? Seems like a bargain! For us, anyway...

Several thousand of Diesel's nearly 25 million followers have already offered encouragement, so let's hope his Furyan side is itching to get back to the killin'.

The third movie (tentatively just called RIDDICK) will dial things down after the enjoyably bombastic CHRONICLES, and finds our apathetic anti-hero struggling to survive against indigenous lifeforms and some persistent mercs on a barren alien planet, before heading to his homeworld for final retribution.

sounds good to me! Vin does need to lose a little weight though. He had a bit of a double chin, and a pot belly in fast 5.

joblo.com fucked my post up

but the jist of it... CAN NOT WAIT, FUCK YEAH!

atta boy Vin, one of the first times in a LONG time I heard an actor actually be down to earth enough to say he'll take a pay cut instead of the usual 'if you don't pay me $55 million for this one role I'm not doing it'

Dark place? Are you kidding me right now you idiot! Why is everyone in love with this moron? He can't act for one! He along with everyone else seems to forget he said he was done with FF type of movies after the first one came out, he said he wanted more of a challenge. He came out with "find me guilty" (ooh he even grew his hair out!) he hit every talk show and made up the fact he was getting oscar buzz, sound familiar? Well guess what Vinny? Yeah shave your head and here is your white

You've got to be kidding me

Did someone down there really compare Riddick to Indiana Jones? Are you out of your fucking mind? I respect that these flicks have an audience, but ...fucking EVERYONE thinks this is great? OK. I don't.

I loved Pitch Black, didn't care much for the 2nd movie but didn't hate it. I'd be up for one more... especially if its rated R.

Chronicles is one of my favourite dumb movies. Just out and out enjoyable to watch - idiotic but it doesn't care, but thankfully inventive with it.

Not really a Riddick fan, i thought Chronicles was awful and Pitch Black was good despite him. I do like anyone who puts art ahead of money, love the passion Vin!

It's exactly because he's an actor he talks like this. As in unlike most action stars, Vin is actually a trained actor who just happens to be really jacked. Not all actors talk like this I know, but more than I few do.

FUCK YES

I hope Vin Diesel checks JoBlo.com, because I support his mentality 100%. Richard B. Riddick is one of my favorite characters of all time. He is to me what Indiana Jones is to people who were young in the 80s.

Loved Pitch Black, thought Chronicles was an almost perfect sci-fi epic. Lookin forward to another Riddick. Nice to see Vin back in form between Fast and Riddick.

I really disliked Chronicles, but maybe I owe it another watch since I've only seen it once. But I like Riddick the character and Pitch Black, so I'll remain optimistic about this film for now.

Pitch Black is a classic.

But Chronicles was a piece of garbage. perhaps a tighter leash on the finances will be a good thing for the project, as Pitch Black was shot on a small budget. In any case, I look forward to it. Not enough of these kind of franchises active anymore these days with Terminator being on ice.

needs to be R...

And scary like the first one vin. I loved the first one and second a lot but IDK the second could have been better. I still enjoyed it. Also make it kind of long and epic.

Do It

I wasn't a fan of the Riddick films when they first came out, but they've grown on me. They seem to age like wine.

I have a suspicion that the Riddick franchise may end up like Blade Runner, where they weren't received well at their release, but will come to be respected over time.

There is a God, and his name is...

...Vin Diesel! Hell yes, I'll headed to his facebook site now. Between the long awaited return and if they tied in a video game. He stands to make oodles of cash. Plus, he knows he really want too. He just likes keeping us crazed Riddick fans honest.

Vin Diesel is the man!!!! I loved Pitch Black and loved Chronicles of Riddick even more!!!! I have no idea how people could not like Chronicles. It seemed pretty badass to me. At this point, I'll take anything Riddick. The finale paragraph in this article is literally the coolest thing I've heard all day!
I don't care what people say, Vin Diesel is frakin' awesome!!!!!
