While promoting Fast & Furious, the fourth installment of The Fast and Furious franchise, Vin Diesel revealed he is working with Universal Studios on developing a sci-fi TV series exploring in detail the Universe of Riddick, including the Necromongers.

Diesel won't reprise his role of Riddick, but he will participate to the creative process of the show.

Richard B. Riddick is a fictional character, savior of the galaxy from the Necromonger invasion, portrayed by Vin Diesel in Pitch Black (2000) and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004). A third opus of the saga was planned but seems to have been cancelled. However, the adventures of Riddick continued in video games with The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox 360 and PC), and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and PC), due to be released in April.

Let's hope Mr. Diesel has the final say in who gets to play the character that he made famous. In fact, he should demand final approval.

Noooooooooooo! Who else could possibly play Riddick? Ok I can't breath............ air need air!

Ok........I'm good now! Let me just say that I was so glad Vin came back for the Fast and Furious! Kudos! Loved it! That was my Fast and Furious 3, as nothing could make me watch that Tokyo Drift nonsense!!

I was really getting excited when I heard that there might be more Riddick in our future, but this news is like a dagger to the heart!

I guess I'll watch this TV series if I must, but it won't be the same without the ultimate Necromonger.... "Vin Riddick Diesel"!

sniff sniff waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

vin-diesel cheer myself up!!

Ain't that some...

Dude I oh so feel you on that, it's going to be bull when someone takes over. I mean that part was created for him plus who could be that sexy in some retarded lookin' goggles, for real?!

I guess we're stuck with waiting and hoping that the universal studios kami and Diesel will make the right decision. Ugh don't they know how upsetting it is when the lesser guy replaces the real actor? Ridunkolous!
