It’s been a little while since he last posted new photos, but Vin Diesel is back at his official Facebook page and has shared a new image from his upcoming Riddick. What’s more, the actor has seen the film and he’s pretty excited about it.
“You know I like to let you in on things, even before Hollywood knows…” Diesel writes, “Haha… Last night I was invited in to the editing room, to see the first cut of the new Riddick… WOW!!! P.s. I was so affected/excited… I couldn’t sleep. GRRRR!!!”
In the film, written and directed by David Twohy, the infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.
