Vin Diesel Plans Fourth and Fifth Riddick Films
Vin Diesel has entered negotiations to star in a fourth and fifth movies in the Chronicles of Riddick series.
The Fast and the Furious actor confirmed he has already held talks with Universal Pictures about reprising his role as anti-hero Richard B. Riddick in the sci-fi film franchise, and he is "excited" about the prospect of the series being extended.
"I think they are liking what they are seeing... haha, cause they asked when both Underverse and Furya would be ready to make and release... haha... now that's a ways in the future but it is exciting. (sic)" he wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
The 44-year-old actor recently wrapped on the third film in the franchise, The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking, and he revealed the movie is set to be released early next year despite previous plans for the movie to come out at the end of 2012.
"The studio said the earliest they could release the new Riddick is in January... was hoping for 2012... but, it's on the horizon," he wrote.
The forthcoming Riddick motion picture is written and directed by David Twohy, and country singer Keith Urban looks set to reprise his role as Vaako, with Katee Sachoff and Jordi Molla also in line to star in the project.
