A legion of sci-fi fans, Vin Diesel is most loved for his portrayal of the prison-breaking, shiny-eyed Richard B. Riddick.
Diesel has played the Riddick character in three films: 2000’s Pitch Black, 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick, and 2013’s Riddick. and a fourth installment has long been mooted.
‘Riddick 4’ Plot
Riddick 4 could follow the same formula as The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) as more action/adventure oriented rather than horror oriented like Pitch Black (2000) and Riddick (2013).
In this film, Riddick finally finds his home planet Furya, he has no idea what’s in store for him.

‘Riddick 4’ Release date
Diesel first announced Riddick 4 in January 2014, on Facebook that Universal wishes to develop a fourth Riddick film, again prompted by robust DVD sales of the most recent film in the series. They were looking into Media Rights Capital or Legendary Pictures to co-finance it.
Diesel also announced via Facebook page that the fourth film is tentatively titled Furya and will have an R rating. The title Riddick 4: Furya has been floating around the internet for a few years now.
November 22, 2015 Vin Diesel revealed on Instagram that director David Twohy had begun writing the fourth installment, Furya.
In May 2016, Diesel and Twohy teased Furya via a Facebook post claiming that production on The Chronicles of Riddick: Furya may begin in early 2017. But getting a movie made is very tough thing and especially when you’re dealing with an in-demand talent like Diesel.
Sure enough, 2017, passed with no updates, as did 2018, leaving Riddick fans to wonder if it would happen at all. Given Diesel’s busy schedule, that fear seemed founded.
On July 21, 2019, Vin Diesel announced via an Instagram post that he had received Twohy’s script for Riddick 4: Furya, which he finally delivered to Diesel in the summer of 2020.
In a video, Vin Diesel asked: “Are you guys excited to hear about Furya? Do you want to know where it all began with that dark character Riddick?”.
