14 Feb – Following the success of 2013's "Riddick", Vin Diesel is set to return as the titular character again in the latest instalment, "Riddick: Furya".


The news was confirmed by director David Twohy, who helmed all the movies since 2000's "Pitch Black", including the animated short, "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury".

"Our legion fans have demanded it for years, and now we're finally ready to honour their call-to-action with Riddick: Furya," Twohy said in a statement.

"My collaboration with Vin and One Race has spanned 20 fruitful years, as together we've created three movies, two video games, an anime production and motion comics for the internet. This new big-screen event will see a return to Riddick's homeworld, where we finally get to explore Riddick's genesis."

According to the official logline, "Riddick: Furya" sees the titular character returning to his homeworld and finding other Furyans fighting for their existence against a new enemy.

Back in January, Diesel teased fans of his return as Riddick by sharing a photo of a Furyan, and wrote, "Furya awaits".
