Vin Diesel Hints at Third Riddick Movie

In an interview with GameSpot talking about the upcoming "The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena" video game, Vin Diesel hinted at a third movie in the "Chronicles of Riddick" franchise.

"Maybe we're too tight-lipped about the next 'Chronicles of Riddick' film, and I think circa the release of [Dark Athena] that's probably when you'll start hearing more about the next 'Riddick' film," Diesel said. "It is underway and I almost think it's a coincidence that we haven't heard anything, that there hasn't been a lot of public stuff on the 'Riddick' movie.

Diesel added that David Twohy, who wrote and directed Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, is finishing up the script.

"Assault on Dark Athena" hits stores on April 7th on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Haven't seen the previous Riddick films, but I heard they were entertaining. My friend Matt enjoyed those so I'm sure he would be excited for another movie. I guess another movie might sound like a good idea since it would be ideal to finish off the trilogy with 3 movies rather than 2 right?

I kinda liked Pitch Black. Not really liking Chronicles of Riddick. It would be a disaster movie if it wasn't for Dame Judy Dench.

I also watched Babylon AD, but haven't finished it, yet. It's the role VD is type-casted to do.

I heard Babylon AD sucked big time. Havent watched it yet, but heard alot of bad news about it. Even the director of the movie said he wasnt happy with it since Fox (the distributor of the movie) cut alot of footage out and made it more audience friendly.
