Vin Diesel not giving up on Riddick franchise
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I actually kind of like Vin Diesel. Yeah, I’m sick of the Fast and Furious movies, but I think Diesel is a cool guy and I’d like to see more of him in action films. With that said, I have no desire to see another Riddick film. I thought PITCH BLACK was good because of the low budget and the surprise factor, but CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK was horrible and it got completely out of hand. Diesel has been a supporter of the franchise for some time now and it looks like his return to fame gave him a chance to finally resurrect the Riddick franchise.
David Twohy directed the first two and he will return to direct the third. No details have been released, but this one will go back to the PITCH BLACK style and focus on Riddick the character and will presumably be a simpler film.
