As he is wont to do, Vin Diesel has given his Facebook fans their first look at him in character as Riddick from the set of he and David Twohy’s “Riddick” movie. I could be wrong, but it looks like Riddick is wearing his Necromonger costume here. Remember that at the end of “The Chronicles of Riddick”, our badass hero had assumed control of the Intergalactic warmongering baddies. Well, not for long, anyway.
Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
Besides Vin Diesel, the cast includes Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, and Nolan Funk. As to a release date, you’re probably looking at 2013 or thereabouts.
