It looks like the next chapter in the Vin Diesel powered Riddick saga will start filming later this year after Diesel finishes up Fast 5 (the next installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise). David Twohy will again write and direct. The working title has been The Chronicles of Riddick:Dead Man Stalking and is now just going by "Riddick", which I kind of like better! Well today ShockTillYouDrop got their hands on the official synopsis and we had to share it with y'all.
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
It seems like they are really taking care of this project and want to bring the franchise back bigger and badder than ever! Even though I really liked The Chronicles of Riddick it didn't fair very well at the box office and that is what counts! The next one will get back to the darker and grittier side of Riddick and will be a hard rated R, so says the Diesel man himself!
Are y'all ready for the next Riddick movie?
