Vin Diesel gives an update on the next Riddick movie

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.
