Diesel to Tranform Himself for Next Riddick Film

Actor talks about director’s wishes

Vin Diesel took to his Facebook page a few hours ago to talk about the latest progress on Riddick, the third film to feature the character first introduced in Pitch Black.

“So the director of Riddick, my partner on COR since the beginning, DT…has a new challenge in store. He wants me to have 3 different body looks for this next chapter… There is the DiNorscio type, the Dom type, and the lean Furyan type… but all in the same movie, haha…” writes Diesel.

“DT” is his reference to writer-director David Twohy. And DiNorscio is Diesel’s reference to Giacomo “Jackie Dee” DiNorscio who the actor played in Find Me Guilty. Physically, there’s a slight difference so we get what Diesel is saying there. But really, what’s the difference between “Dom” and “Furyan”? More bulk than what Diesel already has?

Sounds like momentum is building on the threequel. Here’s a synopsis we picked up some time ago: Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
