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.
