"The Chronicles of Riddick" lead actor Vin Diesel has come up with another update on the third installment of "Riddick" movie. Sitting down with MTV, the "Fast and Furious" star revealed that there will be some epic fight scenes between the monsters and his character, Richard B. Riddick.

"There will be long scenes and long portions, full acts of just Riddick against the beasts - or creatures - isolated, which will be very compelling," the 41-year-old carefully said. "How that's interwoven with the mythology set forth in 'Chronicles of Riddick' is what we're waiting for from David Twowy, who's almost done with the script." He then added, "It's a 'Chronicles of Riddick' story told in the 'Pitch Black' fashion."

In late 2008, Vin Diesel has exposed that screenwriter David Twowy is engaged in the scripting of the two sequels for "The Chronicles of Riddick". "David Twowy right now is writing the scripts," he told MTV at the time. Later on, he pointed out that details should be coming out circa the release of "The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena" game.

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.

SO happy this amazing series/character wasn't abandoned after all! I'm especially glad that there will be some real, long fight scenes, as the first movie - while still AMAZING - had extremely short fight scenes. I really didn't feel that we got to see enough of Riddick's true fighting ability. Not to mention, TCOR had a harsh lack of places. I mean he went to New Mecca - bit happened there -, then to Crematoria, then goes and fights the boss and that's it! Not that I'm panning the movie; it's one of my all time favorite films!

Riddick has to go to the underverse in the sequel. The story would probably have a Pitch Black theme/feel to it. Since I liked all of the Riddick movies, long fight scenes are just fine for me. I hope the sequel is a success. If I was famous or rich, I would give Vin Diesel lets say 2-4 million to make the movie as long as he cast me and made a character for me.

Well I could do without LONG fight scenes, but if he finds Carolyn Fry still alive on that planet, I'll put up with anything. It's been years and I still can't believe they killed her off from the original movie.
