Vin Diesel and David Twohy will reunite for Riddick: Furya, a new sequel which will explore the origin of the title character.
It’s been a decade since the release of Riddick, but at long last, it seems that the long-awaited sequel is finally moving forward. Deadline has reported that Vin Diesel and David Twohy will be reuniting for Riddick: Furya, which will dive into the origin of Diesel’s character.
Riddick: Furya will follow Riddick as he “finally returns to his home world of Furya, a place he barely remembers and one he fears might be left in ruins by the Necromongers. He finds Furyans who are fighting for their survival against a new enemy. And some of these Furyans are more like Riddick than he could have ever imagined.” David Twohy will direct the Riddick sequel from his own script, with Vin Diesel obviously returning to play Riddick once more.
“Our legion fans have demanded it for years, and now we’re finally ready to honor their call-to-action with Riddick: Furya,” David Twhoy said in a statement to Deadline. “My collaboration has been fruitful for 20 years with Vin and One Race. We’ve made three movies, two games, and motion comics, as well as two anime productions. This new big-screen event will see a return to Riddick’s homeworld, where we finally get to explore Riddick’s genesis.“
Vin Diesel has kept the dream of a Riddick sequel alive all these years and recently posted some concept art from the project. Vin Diesel’s biggest success story is Fast and Furious, but I have always loved Riddick. The actor played the role in Pitch black before returning to The Chronicles of Riddick. Diesel was not about to let Riddick go. The sequel was not a commercial or critical success. Close to ten years later, he was able to bring the character back once again for Riddick. This is a very promising development. However, I have learned to manage my expectations so that I don’t get too excited until the filming begins. 3
