Vin Diesel has turned into an actor/publicist, especially when it comes to his upcoming third installment in Riddick, the third film in a franchise focused on the titular character who, this time, has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet where he must fight for survival against alien predators before ultimately having to fend against a crew of mercenaries out to kill him.

That, however, would only seem to be part of the story if this new picture tells us anything as Diesel posted the above image of Riddick sitting on a massive throne. The picture was accompanied by a message reading, “It has been 9 years since the Chronicles of Riddick was released… all along I knew I would eventually have to return to that dark place, the mind of an Alpha Furyan…”

Riddick is directed by David Twohy and co-stars Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, Bokeem Woodbine, Matt Nable and Nolan Funk. The film is set for a September 6 release.
