Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) has taken to Facebook once more to deliver another new shot of him in character as the anti-hero Richard B. Riddick in writer-director David Twohy’s forthcoming sci-fi action sequel Riddick, which you can see right here…
“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 Diesel for the third instalment in The Chronicles of Riddick franchise is Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness), who reprises his role as Vakko, while franchise newcomers include Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Jordi Molla (Colombiana), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall), Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) and Nolan Gerard Funk (Glee).
Riddick is set for a North American release on September 6th, with a UK date yet to be confirmed.
