Vin Diesel is about to re-enter the world of Riddick.
The Fast and the Furious star posted a new image from the sci-fi movie on his Facebook page this week.
The photo, showing Vin Diesel as Ridick siting on a throne, is captioned: “It has been 9 years since The Chronicles of Riddick was released… all along I knew I would eventually have to return to that dark place, the mind of an Alpha Furyan…”
Riddick, which was also produced by Vin Diesel, will hit theaters and IMAX screens on September 6.
The movie was directed by David Twohy, who directed both Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, will feature Vin Diesel fighting against an alien race of predators.
Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:
“Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.”
Riddick isn’t the only character that Vin Diesel will be revisiting this year. The movie star is also set to star in the 6th Fast and the Furious movie this May.
Are you excited for the new Riddick movie?
