David Twohy is scripting the next installment of Riddick as we speak, and it’s underway. The story will return to a Pitch Black [sensibility] while servicing the mythology that’s been enhanced in Chronicles of Riddick.”
Well the project seems on a good track according to those tidbits that Vin Diesel shared on his facebook page:
“The Riddick team is in New Zealand location scouting already… that’s exciting.” (December 1, 2009)
“P.s. The Riddick team has returned from New Zealand, and from the images, it’s no wonder why DT loved it… it’s like a director’s paradise.” (December 6, 2009)
I still wonder why Riddick would have left the Necromonger throne he won in Riddick 2. But I’m kind of happy to know that the franchise goes back to its roots and that Riddick hasn’t become fat king giving orders to his soldiers.
I wait with impatience for the movie Riddick 3!
