Vin Diesel confirms plans afoot for new Riddick sequel
Riddick 4 is on the way, it seems, as Vin Diesel reveals Universal wants to develop another film in the series,
Whether you liked or disliked the big screen revival of Riddick, that's just arriving on DVD and Blu-ray now, one thing that's clear is that it's been a successful resurrection of the franchise. Overcoming reviews that veered more towards negative than positive, the film did decent business at the box office (banking nearly $100m against a modest budget), and is now proving to be a success on its disc release. So much so that Vin Diesel has revealed a new Riddick movie looks like it's heading into development.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, Diesel said that "Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There's no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated R, and to do it with such a low budget. It's a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much". He then added the pivotal words "Universal also says they want to develop the next one".
Riddick 4 it is, then. When we can expect it is unclear at the minute, but as we hear more, we'll let you know...
