With the surprisingly positive response to the new Fast and Furious film that’s right around the corner, Universal Pictures seems hot to get Vin Diesel back into another role that he made famous — that of the badass known as Riddick.
IESB reports this morning via “inside information” that Riddick may be back on the big screen as early as 2010. Talk about hitting the fast track.
From their article:
The new Riddick film will be more down and dirty with less “fantasy epic stuff” to deal with. A bounty hunter/space pirate type of storyline is expected. The film will have a capped budget of around $35 million.
According to the site we should expect an official announcement some time shortly after the April 3rd release date of Fast and Furious 4. I’m not one to support the notion of “inside information” but this all seems pretty damned likely with all of the renewed interest in the series. When we know, you’ll know.
