Fans of Riddick have waited 9 years for his return and Vin Diesel is making sure their wait was worthwhile! As is the norm with the social actor, Diesel shared an image from his upcoming film ‘Riddick.’
The image is not at all spoilery and shows the anti-hero/escaped convict Riddick being very contemplative as he sits on what looks like a futuristic type of motocycle in the rain. David Twohy is back in the director’s seat and has promised that this Riddick will resemble the bare bones character first seen in ‘Pitch Black.’
The film won’t be due out until September and while we’re anxiously waiting for a trailer, the image below will just have to tide us over. Check it out and let us know if you’re excited about ‘Riddick!’
The latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.
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’ stars Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Bokeem Woodbine, Nolan Gerard Funk, Keri Hilson, and WWE’s Dave Bautista and will drop in theaters on September 6, 2013.
