Riddick is one of the coolest characters I’ve ever seen in film.  I remember walking out of the theater after Pitch Black and looking over at one of my buddies saying “I wouldn’t be surprised if they made more movies around just that Riddick character.”  Turns out, I was lucky enough to be right….

When Chronicles of Riddick came out a number of years ago, there was a major push including a video game tie-in and and animated series.   I personally thought the movie was really cool, and I’ve been buying the video games ever since.  I’ve been wondering ever since why we haven’t seen more of Riddick in the theaters.

As it turns out, that movie that I (and many others like me) have been waiting for may become a reality….

According to Aintitcool.com:

“While no formal announcement has been made about further film(s?), Vin Diesel has already indicated that franchise writer/director David Twohy has scripted at least one new RIDDICK sequel (although hints suggest there are actually two follow-ups being mulled).”

Two movie sequels you say? The geek hairs on the back of my neck just stood up.

Evidently Diesel, has been writing about the pre-production of the movie in his Facebook page.  Just looking down his “comments” It’s already very apparent that something is in the works.  Some of his comments read:

“The Riddick team is in New Zealand location scouting already… that’s exciting.”

“The Riddick script is completed… great job DT.”

Anyway, I’m stoked.  We’ll have to watch for more as time goes on.
