Vin Diesel Announces Riddick Sequel And TV Spinoff
Nov 22 2015
In an Instagram post on Friday, November 20, the actor confirms that the second sequel to the "Riddick" chronicles is in the works along with the TV spin-off. The Riddick franchise has always had the markings of a really cool, well-built science fiction universe, and the general lawlessness is something that could be really exciting to see week to week.
Action star Vin Diesel gave his fans a double treat when he broke the news of the third installment of "Chronicles of Riddick" in making, along with a TV series "Merc City".
Diesel also revealed that "DT" (filmmaker David Twohy, who has written and directed every cinematic entry in the Riddick universe) is set to begin scripting the next Riddick film next month.
While Vin Diesel prepares to bring back his characters from Fast and Furious and XXX, he doesn't want you to forget about Riddick. Speaking to Variety earlier in the month, Diesel said he's working right now on spin-offs of the Fast & the Furious film franchise.
As for details on the upcoming Chronicles of Riddick series, there isn't too much information at this time.
It is understood that Diesel's production company, One Race Films, will be handling the movie, and his newly-formed TV division will handle the series.
