After The Chronicles Of Riddick flopped, it seemed unlikely we’d ever see the character again (outside video games). However, while Vin Diesel and director David Twohy have had to ditch the grand-scale space operatics they’d initially envisioned for an entire Riddick trilogy following Chronicles, they are bringing the character back in a movie that’s said to be more in the vein of the film that first introduce us to the character, Pitch Black.
Now the movie has been shot and VIn Diesel has slowly been leaking more info about the movie vis his Facebook page, and now he’s released a brand new image, featuring his title character on a rain-soaked planet.
Here’s the (unconfirmed) synopsis: ‘Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.’
The film hits cinemas this autumn.
