Venkman here - Vin Diesel loves his Riddick Character. He must have a blast making these movies because he wants to make two more of them! Riddick was introduced to us in a great little Sci-Fi film called 'Pitch Black'. Diesel wanted to tell this character background story so he went out and made Chronicles of Riddick which was a pretty fun Sci-Fi movie as well. So here is what he told MTV about what is going on with the next chapters of Riddick:
"David Twowy right now is writing the scripts. The only question is whether we take a page from the ‘Lord of the Rings' guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind," he said of Riddick, the Furyan warrior first introduced in the 2000 film "Pitch Black." "‘The Chronicles of Riddick' was presented as a three part trilogy that would answer ‘Pitch Black' in the same way that ‘Lord of the Rings' answered ‘The Hobbit.'"
I am on board with this plan! I would like to see 2 more Riddick movies, at the same time if it didn't happen I wouldn't really miss it. I am not that hard core of a riddick fan but I like the movies. If they make it I'll watch it.
"Everyone knows I love the Riddick character and I'm always working on it," Diesel asserted. "It just takes five years to make another one because David Twohy and I are so precious about it."
Taking the time to make the movie you really want to make is a good sign of a good movie.
So where will Riddick go next? After taking the throne of the Necromonger King at the end of the last chapter, is there any doubt?
"Sooner or later we all end up in the Underverse," he said of where we can expect the next chapter to take place, adding in a Riddick-like voice, "Sooner or later."
Sounds like a plan! I'm in! What do you all think of the series? Are you stoked for this or are you over it?
