Vin Diesel will be back for Riddick: Furya, ahead of filming Fast & Furious 11: more on the story right here.

Outside of the original Pitch Black movie, that introduced Vin Diesel as the character of Riddick on the big screen, there’s an argument that the terrific videogame The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay is as good as the franchise has got on screen.

Certainly 2004’s mega-budget The Chronicles Of Riddick stumbled a little, and then a third movie, 2013’s Riddick, financially was more rewarding but still not top tier.

Nonetheless, Vin Diesel is not discouraged, and he’s reuniting with director David Twohy for a long-mooted fourth cinematic adventure for the character of Riddick. The film in question will be called Riddick: Furya, and the assumption was that it was going to slot in around production for the upcoming Fast & Furious 11.

Last week though, we learned that Fast & Furious 11 wasn’t going to be shooting until the start of 2025. The production of the next Riddick film might just have something to do with that.

We now learn that Riddick: Furya has taken its place at the head of the queue where Vin Diesel’s schedule is concerned, and it’s reported that filming will be getting underway in August. Furthermore, it also now appears to be confirmed that David Twohy will indeed be directing again.

The film is set to shoot in Europe, with the UK, Germany and Spain the home for the movie. There’s a synopsis doing the rounds too, which reads as follows…

In “Riddick: Furya,” Riddick finally returns to his homeworld, a place he barely remembers and one he fears might be left in ruins. But there, he finds other Furyans fighting for their existence against a new monster — and some of these Furyans are more like Riddick than he could have ever imagined.

It’s looking like a 2025 release date for the film, although that’s not yet been confirmed. As and when we hear more, we’ll let you know…
