Despite the poor run of "The Chronicles of Riddick" in the box office, the two sequels of the sci-fi thriller have apparently been worked on. Four years after "Riddick" hit the theaters, the titular character's depicter, Vin Diesel, exposed that screenwriter David Twowy is engaged in the scripting of the two sequels.

To MTV News, the 41-year-old action actor revealed the good news saying, "David Twowy right now is writing the scripts." On the reason why the sequels take a long time to be developed, he explained, "Everyone knows I love the Riddick character and I'm always working on it. It just takes five years to make another one because David Twohy and I are so precious about it."

Offering what Twowy and he have in mind on the follow-up movies, the "The Pacifier" star stated, "The only question is whether we take a page from the 'Lord of the Rings' guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind. 'The Chronicles of Riddick' was presented as a three part trilogy that would answer 'Pitch Black' in the same way that 'Lord of the Rings' answered 'The Hobbit'."

Released on June 11, 2004, "Riddick" centers on the adventures of Richard B. Riddick as he tries to avoid capture from bounty hunter Toombs following the events happened in 2000 movie "Pitch Black". The movie starring also Judi Dench, Karl Urban and Thandie Newton made as much as $57.8 million nationwide and collected a worldwide total of $115.8 million.

I agree, "Riddick" is a classic and I can't wait to see the 2 follow-ups in the theatres as well. If I can be allowed to beg, please bring back sexy Thandie Newton as well for both, and do a more spectacular ending then "Babylon A.D." and you'll have a cult trilogy rivaling "Lord"! Thanks!

RIDDICK was ahead of its time. Critics have historically given thumbs down to scifi, because it takes a higher level of intelligence to comprehend it. (no offense meant) If the movie doesn't fly, please get a ghost writer to publish a saga book - I'd pay anything to give this plot proper closure! Cheers!
