New image of Vin Diesel as Riddick

Vin Diesel is set to don the goggles once more for a third live-action outing as the antihero Richard B. Riddick later this year in writer-director David Twohy’s sci-fi sequel Riddick, and the actor has taken to Facebook to release a new shot of him in character…

Vin Diesel in Riddick

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.

Joining Vin Diesel in the cast of Riddick are Karl Urban (Dredd), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Jordi Molla (Colombiana), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall), Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) and Nolan Gerard Funk (Glee). The $38m sequel is set to arrive in North American cinemas on September 6th, with a UK release date yet to be announced.
