More Info on the Next Riddick Film

More Info on the Next Riddick FilmWith 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.

    This is something I would like to see. I liked Pitch Black a lot and Chronicles Of Riddick so to see more would be great.

    It’s no suprise to me. Fans keep clamouring for more, they keep releasing video games, and it’s the franchise that Vin chose to do instead of a XXX series or Fast & Furious series.

    I know when I saw Pitch Black I was just in awe of how cool the character was. The only thing that I disliked about The Chronicles of Riddick was stuff in the fight scenes were so fast that it was nearly impossible to comprehend what was happenning, sucking some of the joy from the viewing.

    I’ll slap down my cash to see a new film…..Bring on The Riddick!
