Vin Diesel unveiled a new photo from the Untitled Riddick Sequel on his Facebook account. With it, he wrote, “The Furyan left for dead… GRRRR… P.s. A Riddick production still, from this week’s filming.”
The third Riddick movie has been shooting in Montreal and Universal Pictures recently announced the plot synopsis, along with the cast.
In the Untitled Riddick Sequel, the infamous Riddick (Vin Diesel) 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 the planet 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.
Riddick sees the return of Karl Urban (Star Trek) as Vaako and introduces to the series Jordi Molla (Bad Boys II) as Santana, the arrogant captain of the mercenary ship; Matt Nable (Killer Elite) as Boss Johns, a man looking for answers; Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) as a Nordic mercenary named Dahl; and Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall) as a bounty hunter named Moss.
Rounding out the cast are Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), Conrad Pla (Immortals), Raoul Trujillo (Apocalypto), Nolan Gerard Funk (Aliens in America) and two-time Grammy Award-nominated singer Keri Hilson.
Series veteran David Twohy returns to the director’s chair for Riddick 3, working from his own script.
