Riddick

Vin Diesel returns to the big screen as Riddick in the autumn of 2013, it's been confirmed...

It sounds like it’s been something of a battle, and a labour of love on behalf of David Twohy and Vin Diesel, to bring Riddick back to the big screen. It’s little secret that there were financial-related issues earlier in the production that nearly led to Riddick being shut down, but thankfully, these were resolved.

And that means that the coast is clear for the new film to make its way to cinemas. The new film is now in post-production, and David Twohy has written and directed it. In front of the camera, Diesel is joined by Katee Sackhoff and Karl Urban.

Finally, we now know when to expect the film too. The new Riddick movie, it’s been announced, will arrive in cinemas on September 6th. Furthermore, it’s getting both a conventional and an IMAX release, it’s been confirmed.

We’ll have more on Riddick closer to the time…
