Back in November, Vin Diesel announced both a new Riddick movie and potential Merc City tie-in TV series in the most Vin Diesel way possible: saying literally anything over social media, and having it so. Welp, consider a small-screen Riddick a reality, as Diesel’s new development deal with Universal TV confirms a series going to market.
After the overblown and overlong 'The Chronicles of Riddick,' it's something of a relief to see Vin Diesel's tough, sci-fi antihero return to his roots with 'Riddick.' The trailers have already sold a smaller, bloodier, more 'Pitch Black'-esque story and the newly released first clip from the film emphasize the most important part of the whole film: Diesel going mano-a-mano with a bunch of snarling extraterrestrial beasties.
Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators.
