Diesel teases next Riddick film in development

Vin Diesel briefly alluded to the third Riddick film’s state of development, while being interviewed by GameSpot about his upcoming console game The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena:

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. It is underway. David Twohy is finishing up the next script.

This third Riddick film is a long time coming, and was supposed to be made right after ‘Chronicles’, but was delayed because of the so-so performance of that film. Previous reports indicated that a third Riddick movie would be smaller in scale than the second installment – which was epic compared to Pitch Black.

A playable demo for The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is currently available as a free download on XBOX Live.
