Suddenly Vin likes sequels. He’s got “Fast and Furious” in the can, he’s about to make a deal to star in “XXX 3″ and now, he wants to dust off Riddick.
And on that topic is anyone else â€“ besides Vin Diesel â€“ interested in seeing another â€œRiddickâ€ movie?
Show of hands?
Yeah, just as I thought.
Whatever the case, there may be a second, maybe even third, sequel to â€œPitch Blackâ€, the brawny baldie tells MTV â€“ which is surprising considering the last one didnâ€™t even break even.
“David Twowy right now is writing the scripts. The only question is whether we take a page from the ‘Lord of the Rings’ guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind,” he said of Riddick, the Furyan warrior first introduced in the 2000 film “Pitch Black.” “‘The Chronicles of Riddick’ was presented as a three part trilogy that would answer ‘Pitch Black’ in the same way that ‘Lord of the Rings’ answered ‘The Hobbit.’”
The over-confident comeback kid – swinging for invisible balls by the sounds – says heâ€™s still crushing on the glasses-wearing underverser.
â€œEveryone knows I love the Riddick character and Iâ€™m always working on it,â€ Diesel asserted. â€œIt just takes five years to make another one because David Twohy and I are so precious about it.â€
