Next month sees Hollywood action star Vin Diesel portraying the role of Riddick for the third time, when the movie Riddick is released. Vin has spoken about the movies and whether this will be the end of his connection with the franchise, admitting that he is not sure if there will be any more Riddick movies.
Diesel told Collider, "The reality is that I always envisioned the Riddick franchise as a continuing mythology, so I always imagined that there would be many other films to follow. And yet, I do feel like I answered that growing request from the fans that said, 'Please make another Riddick.'"
He added, "It was one of the three promises that I either made, or people assumed that I made, on the social media network. One of them, obviously, was the return of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). That was something everyone was so vocal about, four and a half years ago. The second was the resurrection of Riddick, and reawakening that mythology. And then, of course, the third one was Hannibal the Conqueror, which is the one promise I haven’t delivered on yet, but I will."
As well as starring Vin Diesel, Riddick also stars Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban and Jordi Molla, as well as an impressive cast. Riddick is directed by David Twohy, who was also involved in the writing of the movie. Riddick will open on September 4 in the UK, before then hitting the big screen in the US on September 6.
