Vin Diesel And David Twohy Talk Trilogy Details For RIDDICK

You may remember in my previous article where I highlit a Facebook post by actor Vin Diesel who recently partook in a private screening with producers for the upcoming film, Riddick. In case you haven't read it, the film, directed by David Twohy, releases on September 6, and is already making headlines regarding hopeful plans for a follow-up that deals with the "underverse" mythology illustrated in the 2004 film, The Chronicles Of Riddick.

"So the there was a screening for the Studio..." Diesel wrote on his Facebook page over a week ago. "The Director thinks it's Riddick's best, the Producers think it's the Director's best... and the Studio.. well... The Studio now wants to make the following chapter... 'COR: The Underverse'. Although, this would be few years away, a script could come in next month... P.s. Those 30 million of you, who saw the production process through Our page... kinda surreal huh?"

This week, UK periodical SFX confirmed the language on what it all could mean for a possible spin-off for the film. Here, they also emphasized the overall chronology in stating how the Riddick "trilogy" would play out, with the 2000 film, Pitch Black essentially having been a prequel. In the interview with SFX, Twohy says the following: "At its core [Riddick] is a survival story about one man, and his only way to get off this planet is to call in the mercenaries for a ride, ...That said, we don’t turn our backs on the mythology that we planted in the last movie, and we are actually bringing Karl [Urban] back for a  few days of filming to advance it and lay the groundwork for movie four. We’re concerned with paying off the loyal fans and think that if somebody doesn’t understand something the solution is to look at the other two movies and get up to speed. It does play in a gratifying way as a standalone movie, but there are threads that we continue to sew that we started in previous movies and will continue in future movies.”

When asked what the future films with deal with, Diesel tells SFX, “You’ve got to go to the Underverse, ...It’s expected, it’s something I firmly believe. You’ll have to go through the Underverse to get to Furya. So, those are the two further stories that are mapped out. The Underverse is a much more costly venture. We went this direction, trying to do an R-rated movie, which is cool and even more interesting because it’s so unexpected. But yes, you will be at the Underverse and you will be at Furya sooner or later.”

Diesel is currently tapped to star in several upcoming films, including Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy and a new fantasy film franchise titled Soldiers Of The Sun.

Stay tuned for more info.
