Vin Diesel continues to give fans of the popular Chronicles of Riddick franchise, which includes anime and video games as well, an inside look at the making of the next film. Titled Riddick, the film has the infamous merc stranded on a deserted planet, fighting for his life against a horde of vicious creatures. His only hope of escape is to leave a signal beacon alerting bounty hunters to his presence. One of the first squads to arrive is led by a man with a personal stake in Riddick’s destruction.

Riddick doesn’t have a release date yet, but expect that to change shortly. David Twohy wrote the script and will direct the film, which also features Katee Sackhoff, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, and Bokeem Woodbine.
