Following on from confirmation earlier that a TV series spin-off to the “Riddick” franchise is on the way, the franchise’s star Vin Diesel posted an unannounced live video on Tuesday and teased to nearly 200,000 viewers a special guest – “Riddick” creator David Twohy.
The pair confirmed that they will start filming on the fourth chapter in the film series, titled “Furia,” beginning in early 2017. The story will effectively serve as an origin story of where Riddick comes from, and it is targeting an R rating confirmed Twohy quite bluntly.
The project is also said to have a “more expansive mythology”. Diesel himself describes the new one as a “little more expansive in its mythology”. No word on when the spin-off TV series “Merc City” could begin production.
