2000′s Pitch Black was a massive underground hit. It engendered a cult following and introduced the little-known Vin Diesel to much of the world well before his breakout role in the Fast & Furious films. The sequel, however, titled The Chronicles of Riddick, didn’t enjoy the same level of success, commercially or critically. Obviously, the fans were disappointed.
Last year’s Riddick made up for all that though and moviegoers got back on board with the character, enough to help the film reach number one in DVD and Blu-Ray sales during its first week of release. Due to this, Universal is now looking to move ahead with the fourth film in the franchise.
The news comes to us from Vin Diesel himself in the form of a celebratory video. Pausing from an ecstatic recital of Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” Diesel thanked his fans for the DVD and Blu-Ray success. »
