Vin Diesel Says Universal Wants More ‘Riddick’
Few people know how to work a camera better than Vin Diesel. The actor proved as much this week by posting a webcam video of himself singing and dancing to Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” — and subsequently using the viral video opportunity to confirm that a fourth Riddick movie is in the works.
“Universal just called me and told me that Riddick is number one on the DVD charts,” the elated Diesel said in the video, posted on his popular Facebook page. “There’s no way in the world Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. You guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was for us to actually get the movie made, and make it rated ‘R,’ and to do it with such a low budget.”
“It’s a win for all of us,” he continued. “I’m excited, and of course, Universal’s also saying they want to develop the next one.”
It’s best to wait for official confirmation from the studio before getting too excited, but to hear Diesel tell it, the Furyan will rise again.
