The 42-year-old actor previously revealed that two sequels of the sci-fi thriller have been worked on and "Riddick" screenwriter was 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."
Later, the "Fast and Furious" star revealed that the third installment of "Riddick" movie will feature 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," he explained. "It's a 'Chronicles of Riddick' story told in the 'Pitch Black' fashion."
