Vin Diesel has shared a couple pieces of concept art from Riddick 4: Furya, the sequel he plans to make with director David Twohy
Almost ten years have gone by since the release of the previous film in the Riddick franchise – and pretty much ever since the release of that movie, franchise star Vin Diesel has been taking every opportunity to hype up the fact that he and franchise director David Twohy are planning to make another sequel, Riddick 4: Furya. So while Diesel is currently busy wrapping up the Fast and the Furious franchise with this year’s release of Fast X and then one more sequel beyond that one, he still took a moment to remind fans that he intends to make Riddick 4: Furya. The latest reminder comes in the form of two pieces of concept art, which you can check out at the bottom of this article.
Riddick 4: Furya will be a continuation of the sci-fi action franchise that began with the creature feature Pitch Black. That was followed by the epic The Chronicles of Riddick, which underperformed at the box office, so they reduced the scope for the third film, Riddick. The franchise also includes an animated short called The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury and three video games, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, and Riddick: The Merc Files.
Diesel and Twohy have also talked about wanting to make TV shows set in the World of Riddick. One would center on the character Kyra, who was featured in Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, and the other would be called Merc City, as it would center on the mercenaries and bounty hunters of the franchise. The thing is, these proposed projects never seem to gain much traction, because few others have ever been as excited about the potential of a Riddick franchise or universe as Diesel and Twohy have been. It doesn’t seem like the follow-up movies have connected with audiences as well as Pitch Black did. I know that has definitely been the case for me. I love Pitch Black, but could do without the other two movies.
