Bless Vin Diesel and his persistence for the Vin Diesel brand name. While the Riddick franchise isn’capital t nearly as successful as Fast and Furious, it definitely has its fans — ample to warrant another installment in the franchise, as Diesel initially promised last year. The particular actor has declared that not only shall we be held getting another Riddick motion picture, but there will be the spinoff TV series, too.
Diesel produced the announcement in his typical fashion, applying social media to propagate the good news:
Last night Us had a party to produce Our TV office. Very exciting. MERC CITY is a show that will follow this Mercs and Bounty Seekers of the Riddick Universe. Later, DT begins writing another Chapter in the Stories of Riddick… FURIA. #HappyFurianFriday
I particularly enjoy the way Diesel capitalizes “Our,” like he’s referring to a spiritual figure. The “DT” because last sentence identifies David Twohy, the writer and also director of the Riddick franchise’s, which began throughout 2000 with Pitch Black, accompanied by 2004's The Chronicles regarding Riddick and the simply-titled Riddick in The year 2013.
As Diesel says, this title of the up coming sequel is Furia, which might be any misspelling as it seems to reference Riddick’s home globe of Furya, a “lifeless world” that was formerly inhabited by spiritual warriors known as Furyans before the Necromonger Kingdom wiped them away — though I’m uncertain why they don’testosterone levels just call this issue The Chronicles of Riddick: Rage Road and get it finished.
In addition, Diesel will be developing a TV series known as Merc City, which will focus on the different mercenaries and bounty predators in the Riddick franchise — may Katee Sackhoff be heading to TV, then?
With Twohy at present writing the project in addition to Diesel soon going into production with Furious 8, it may still be a couple of years before Riddick heads back to the big screen.
