Vin Diesel says that Universal is looking at developing a sequel to Riddick

01.28.2014

Speaking to his fans via Facebook, actor Vin Diesel released a new video that has him dancing in celebration of the news that last summer's RIDDICK is now at the top of the DVD charts. Diesel, who has 63.7 million likes on his Facebook page, also relayed that as a result of the film's success, Universal is now looking to develop a sequel, which would make it the fourth entry in the RIDDICK series.

Here's the video (and text):

 

"I'm just excited, and happy, and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There's no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated 'R,' and to do it with such a low budget. It's a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much. Yeah, I'm excited, and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one."

I recently watched RIDDICK on iTunes and thought it was a lot of fun. The opening "survival" scenes were more intriguing to me than when the bounty hunters entered the picture, but all said it was a fine entry in the series. Diesel has found a character that is wholly his own and he's made a great effort to keep the Furyan rebel alive (along with his rabid fan base). I'm certainly game to watch the steely-eyed badass dispense some bad guys in another outing. What about you?

RIDDICK is now available on blu-ray/DVD. Order it here!

Make it better

I didn't really like RIDDICK but I didn't hate it either. I was a big fan of the first two movies. It seemed bad dialogue heavy with not enough significant action. And next time your gonna film Katie Sackhoff's boobies, FILM THEM FROM THE FRONT!!!

You had one good movie, one pile of fucking garbage, and one mediocre movie....I think it's time to stop making Riddick.

I really dug Riddick, but the FX were a little uneven. Some stuff looked incredible, but then some of it, like the green screen on the hover bikes, looked a bit dodgy. Here's to hoping Universal gives them a good amount of cash for the next one. They've earned it!

pitch black was incredibly cool. it will always be the best in the series. and i love the way riddick's stories seemed to parallel conan. but he is unique in his own right. i'm just sad that when vin eventually becomes too old to play riddick no one would be worthy enough to replace him.

I ended up really liking Riddick. I think the tone was just right, in keeping much more with the spirit of the first film. The Chronicles of Riddick wasn't bad, but the "space opera" direction was probably just too ambitious. The third one pared it back and I really liked the sequences that showcased Riddick's wits as he tries to play the two rival bands of bounty hunters against each other. A fourth movie would be welcome but I hope they come up with a really cool idea for it and perhaps try

Chronicles was horrible, wow that was a major POS. I walked out during it in its theatrical run and gave it another go on cable a couple of months back. I was severely disappointed yet again........... Horrible horrible film.

Really enjoyed Riddick more than I expected to after poor early reviews. I thought it was a great return for a great character. A little too much time spent with lame ass mercs but when Riddick came back on the scene he did so with a bang! Hopefully the next one will feature the Underverse but I have faith in Vin and Twohy regardless.

I really enjoy the universe that's been created here, they aren't the best films to be released by any means but fun they certainly are. Keep them coming and i'll keep going to see them!

Riddick was the most fun I had at the cinema last year. The action was old school and the desert scenes looked great on the big screen.

Riddick was okay, but it felt like a retread of the first film. How many planets with angry alien animals will he run in to? Hopefully not any more. Hopefully they'll come up with some new kind of story-line. But I'll still check out the next one regardless, just because Vin Diesel is one awesome dude.

When they release the upconverted 3D 4K IMAX 40th Anniversary of Empire Strikes Back, can we get Riddick a cameo in the bounty hunter line up?

I would rather have him star in more Riddick films than Fast and Furious films at this point. But I guess his salary from the Fast and Furious franchise contribute towards the budget of the Riddick films being made so......

Hate to say it. I do prefer F&F franchise by a quarter mile.....but since Paul is gone. Im ok with them ending it and Vin focussing on Riddick a bit more.
