Joining with the subtle titled films of the 00’s, Universal Pictures has officially announced Riddick, the third film in the Pitch Black/Chronicles of Riddick franchise. Vin Diesel is officially signed on to star and produce, confirming early teases by the star via Facebook. David Twohy — who wrote and directed the first two films in the series, Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick — will helm from a screenplay he penned. Plot details are being kept under wraps. But insiders say the third outing will hew closer in tone to the cult hit Pitch Black and will focus on the character of Riddick as opposed to the universe he inhabits, which was the case with the critically panned Chronicles of Riddick. Still, Chronicles of Riddick earned $116 million worldwide and spawned a successful vidgame series. Twohy most recently wrote and directed A Perfect Getaway.
