Production Notes from IMDbPro
At the moment it would appear that we should be seeing a Riddick 4 in the years to come, perhaps even sooner than we think, but what it will be about is still up in the air since no one is giving up any real plot details other than the most broad and possibly expansive when it comes to the setting. Of course it had Radha Mitchell and Keith David as well as Vin Diesel , but for the most part the majority of the cast had been supporting characters throughout their careers leading up to that point. But the part of Riddick is what helped to launch Vin Diesel into a new level of fame when it came to this series. Whether the upcoming movie will be a prequel or origin story is uncertain, but one thing anyone can be sure about is that it will be highly anticipated by fans. His race, the Furians, had been wiped off the face of Furia by the Necromongers, who he met in The Chronicles of Riddick and subsequently went to war against. If it is an origin story then it would be best to show the progression of Riddick through his younger years to see just what made a man like him and how he became such a hardened criminal. There had to be something that turned him into the dark individual he became, and something that had to keep him from turning absolutely evil since as any fan would know Riddick is not an all-around bad guy.
