Vin Diesel has been teasing fans with the impending return of one of his most beloved big-screen characters: Richard B. Riddick.
Diesel, who is probably best known as the family-loving mercenary street racer Dominic Toretto in the Fast And Furious franchise, gave life to a cult hero when The Chronicles Of Riddick started all the way back in 2000.
The series (or Chronicles to use the proper term here) actually began life as a low-budget horror film from director David Twohy called Pitch Black. Diesel starred as Riddick - a dangerous prisoner being carted across the galaxy. But when the prison ship crashes on the surface of an inhospitable planet, there's only one man who can help save the crew. It's Riddick, obviously. In case you were wondering.
The Chronicles Of Riddick has since spanned several movies, a couple of books, and a surprisingly good couple of video games. The last movie, called simply Riddick, released in 2013. It's been pretty quite on the Riddick front since then, presumably because Diesel stars in and serves as producer on the Fast And Furious movies.
Even so, the actor has promised that Riddick is far from done and has confirmed multiple times that he will appear in and producer Riddick 4: Furya. When exactly this fourth movie lands remains to be seen, but a a recent teaser shared by Diesel on Instagram would indicate it's coming sooner rather than later.
"Incredible meeting today, thanks team you know who you are," Diesel wrote. "Let's just say Furia may be closer than you think. #Riddick".
Diesel also previously teased a new Riddick game to tie in with the upcoming sequel, which would be a follow-up to 2009's Assault On Dark Athena.
