When ‘Pitch Black’ came out in 2000, no one would have ever imagined that we’d be looking at the release of a third chapter in the saga of Riddick twelve years later. Well, Vin Diesel’s favorite character has grown from cult favorite to pop culture phenomenon and, after a lot of work by the actor himself, ‘Riddick’ is now in production.
As we’ve reported before, Diesel has a great cast on screen with him in both Katee Sackoff and Karl Urban. Until now, we’ve only seen concept art for the movie, but now we’ve got our very first look at Vin Diesel on set as Riddick:
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.
