Soon enough, both Vin Diesel and Twohy wil be explaining to you exactly what a Necromonger is. Your favorite silver-eyed psychopath, Riddick, is coming back.
In an interview with Game Spot about his latest Riddick video game, Diesel spilled the beans about the next Riddick project:
Maybe we're too tight-lipped about the next Chronicles of Riddick film, and I think circa the release of [Dark Athena] that's probably when you'll start hearing more about the next Riddick film. It is underway, and I almost think it's a coincidence that we haven't heard anything, that there hasn't been a lot of public stuff on the Riddick movie....
I think we were so adamant about knocking this game out of the park that we've been doing a lot of late hours—the overtime's on the game at the moment while [Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick screenwriter] David Twohy is finishing up the next script.
Well I'm glad that Twohy is back, because he really needs to come back and put out another Riddick that makes sense the first time around - even though I cherish every single moment that bald brute is on screen. But what will it be about? Will we get to see the Necromonger verse, is he still the Furyian leader, smelling beautiful and playing "who's the better killer"? What about his past, which has been shrouded in mystery for some time?
In any case, I'm delighted, because Riddick news means I get to post this clip:
