Vin Diesel Gives us the Low-Down on Next Riddick Movie

Now that the Bourne franchise has been put on the ice indefinitely (we have Paul Greengrass' quarrel with the studio to thank for that), it looks like Universal is going back to some of its other franchises. And now Vin Diesel has spoken about the preproduction of the newest Riddick movie.

AICN reports:

While no formal announcement has been made about further film(s?), Vin Diesel has already indicated that franchise writer/director David Twohy has scripted at least one new RIDDICK sequel (although hints suggest there are actually two follow-ups being mulled).

Vin recently updated his Facebook page, where he says pre-production work on the next RIDDICK has now progressed to actually looking for places to shoot.

And apparently Diesel's Facebook update read, "The Riddick team is in New Zealand location scouting already... that's exciting."

But is it exciting enough to divert our attention from the fact that the fourth Bourne film has gone down in flames? That's another question altogether.

Despite the fact that these films were always kind of condescended to as being low-budget sci-fi, the fact of the matter is that they were also pretty dang good. If we're going to get another couple films out of the franchise, who are we to complain?
