Vin Diesel and writer/director David Twohy are hard at work creating a fourth installment of the Riddick franchise which is called Riddick: Furya, and it’s really getting close to production.
The script for the movie is finished and ready to go. During a recent interview with GamesRadar, Diesel said, “David Twohy, he wrote a great script. It’s just a matter of timing when we get that opportunity to shoot that. But I believe we’re shooting that in Australia. And it would be the fourth chapter in that series, which would be awesome.”
It was earlier revealed that Furya is the name of Riddick’s homeworld, and this next chapter is said to work as an origin story for Diesel’s character. Twohy earlier said that the movie would be a prequel that gives a taste of the character’s history.
Diesel said, “We did have great success with Escape From Butcher Bay. It feels like an eternity ago now. But, I imagine that we would take advantage of the gaming space and add an extra chapter, but definitely, the [movie’s] script is already written. So it’s safe to say that we are moving towards filming the fourth chapter of Riddick.”
The tagline reads “Everyone wants to be a beast until it’s time to do what real beasts do.”
