Vin Diesel Talks About Continuing the ‘Riddick’ Series

Today at the press day for Vin Diesel's new film, Find Me Guilty, the actor spilled the beans about the continuation of the Chronicles of Riddick series. When he was asked if he was going to make another film, he really hesitated and didn't answer anything.

But after a little incentive, he spoke all about writing about his beloved futuristic character. Here's what he had to say about the thought of returning to the series:

"I haven't...right before I did Riddick, I would look inside the mirror and see two blue eyes staring back at me; I haven't seen that for a while. But, it's coming. It took me five years to make The Chronicles of Riddick and I'm very precious about it and it went through many, many writers. Hopefully, it won't take five years to make this one, but when I was in the process of creating this mythology for Chronicles of Riddick, the idea was to create a trilogy that would start at the end of Pitch Black in the same way that Lord of the Rings is a trilogy that starts at the end essentially of The Hobbit. So I wanted Pitch Black to be The Hobbit of The Chronicles of Riddick; I wrote a storyline that covers three pictures so where Riddick goes in the next two pictures is already mapped out. It's not in script form, but it is all being all developed and it all is going to resurface when you least expect it."

When Vin was asked about buying the rights of the franchise back from Universal and taking it to another studio, he laughed and jokingly said "Who told you that? I'll kill him, where is he?" He continued with "Hmmm, very interesting! Let's just say it sounds like a very interesting idea. I will give it thought."

You can see a different side of Vin in Find Me Guilty, the true story of Mobster Jackie DiNorscio, when it hits theaters on March 17th; it's rated R.

    I hope the series continues. It's now May, 2007 & nothing has been mentioned about the sequels; one to Underverse and the final movie taking place in Furia. Because of the mystery of the Underverse, there was hopeful talk from fans of Kyra returning.

    Come on guys! We aren't getting any younger & its already been 3 years we've been waiting.

    Cut the time short & make both movies back to back.
