This Vin Diesel guy must be contracting out his sleep because I don’t know how else he has the time to do everything he’s got going on lately. Diesel is taking another run at a Triple X movie in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage , there’s the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, the Fast & Furious sequel, and on top of that, he’s helping to launch a new television division for One Race Films‘ production company called MERC CITY which will look into the lives of the Mercenaries in the Riddick Universe. The man is flat-out busy.
Here’s the Instagram Diesel posted over the weekend:
There’s not a ton of information there really, more should be coming out once the production team has a couple of dried ink scripts. The “DT” Diesel mentions is David Twohy, who’s written all the Riddick screenplays and is now working on the next with a title of Furia. Does that mean Riddick will finally make his way home?
It wouldn’t surprise me that Twohy is also involved with the MERC CITY series, writing the pilot and series bible.
Does this mean a return of Katee Sackhoff‘s Dahl character? While Sackhoff is currently working on Longmire over at Netflix, (Great series by the way and Sackhoff is awesome in it.) there’s probably some wiggle room in her schedule to pop in here and there… if not as a series regular.
What do you think? Are you ready for more Riddick Universe?
