Vin Diesel to Start Filming Riddick: Furya in August

Vin Diesel will begin production on the fourth installment of the Riddick franchise, Riddick: Furya, on August 26. The film will be shot in Germany, Spain, and the UK.

This follow-up to the sci-fi films Pitch Black (2000), The Chronicles of Riddick (2004), and Riddick (2013) reunites Diesel with writer and director David Twohy (Riddick series, The Fugitive). Diesel will reprise his role as the anti-hero Richard B. Riddick, a dangerous escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the galaxy.

In Riddick: Furya, Riddick finally returns to his homeworld, a place he barely remembers and one he fears might be left in ruins. But there, he finds other Furyans fighting for their existence against a new monster. Some of these Furyans are more like Riddick than he could have ever imagined.

Diesel will star and produce under his One Race Films banner alongside Samantha Vincent. Thorsten Schumacher for Rocket Science and Lars Sylvest for Thank You Studios will also produce alongside Joe Neurauter.

Rocket Science represented the international sales rights for the film and has completed worldwide pre-sales to the UK (yet to be announced), France (Metropolitan), Germany (Leonine), Spain and Latin America (Sun), Benelux (The Searchers), Poland (Kinoswiat), Canada (Elevation), and Scandinavia (Scanbox).

The territories continue with Portugal (Lusomundo), Switzerland (Ascot Elite), South Africa (Empire), Greece (Femeway), Middle East (Front Row), CIS and Baltic States (Volga), Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech/Slovak, Republic Former Yugoslavia (ProRom), and Thailand (Sahamongkhol). CAA Media Finance represents North American rights.

Vin Diesel‘s credits include the Fast & Furious franchise, voicing Groot in Marvel Studios’ Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy films, Saving Private Ryan, xXx, Bloodshot, and more.

David Twohy has written and directed all three Riddick films. He made his mark in the industry early by writing The Fugitive, which earned him critical acclaim and a WGA nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Twohy just completed writing the financial thriller Big Dogs, which will be directed by Ridley Scott.
