"Deadpool" Sequel in Motion, Screenwriters to Return
Vin Diesel is apparently not only starring in the upcoming Riddick, but also taking on PR duties as well. The actor, who first appeared as the character in 2000’s Pitch Black, revealed an all-new, all-rainy image from the upcoming film on his official Facebook page. Now on its third installment, the Riddick franchise last saw the big screen in 2004 with The Chronicles of Riddick. David Twohy has directed every film in the series and continues to do so with the latest entry.
Here’s the official synopsis:
The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.
The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.
Riddick also stars Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban, Dave Bautista and Jordi Mella. The film is set for a Sept. 6 release date.
