In Riddick: Furya, Riddick finally returns to his homeworld, a place he barely remembers and one he fears might be left in ruins by the Necromongers.

But there he finds other Furyans fighting for their existence against a new enemy. And some of these Furyans are more like Riddick than he could have ever imagined.

“Our legion fans have demanded it for years, and now we’re finally ready to honor their call-to-action with Riddick: Furya,” said Twohy.

“My collaboration with Vin and One Race has spanned 20 fruitful years, as together we’ve created three movies, two video games, an anime production, and motion comics for the internet. This new big-screen event will see a return to Riddick’s homeworld, where we finally get to explore Riddick’s genesis.”

Diesel is one of the world’s biggest action stars, headlining the Fast and Furious Saga and voicing “Groot’ in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy films.

His other credits include Saving Private Ryan, xXx, and Bloodshot. He can next be seen in Fast X, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and ARK: The Animated Series.

Twohy is a major player in the sci-fi space, having written and directed all three Riddick films, the alien horror movie The Arrival, and the supernatural thriller Below.

He is best known for penning the screenplay for Harrison Ford’s The Fugitive, earning him critical acclaim and a WGA nomination. Diesel is represented by CAA, Linden Entertainment, and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson McGinnis Ryan. Twohy is represented by Atlas Artists.
