Ever since his 2000 blockbuster hit ‘Pitch Black’, Vin Diesel has been fascinated with his character Richard B. Riddick. Though his immediate priorities for now include ‘Furious 8’ and ‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’, reports suggest that very soon after Diesel will be back on ‘Chronicles of Riddick… FURIA’.

Pitch Black’s David Twohy will reportedly pen the script, making it well-worth the wait considering the film doesn’t even have a release date yet. And that’s not all…

A TV spinoff called ‘Merc City’ has also been announced to keep the Riddick zeal alive. The planned TV show will follow “the Mercs and Bounty Hunters of the Riddick universe”, according to Diesel, who dropped the bomb via his Instagram.
