riddickVin Diesel’s pet project Riddick is well underway with him sharing his thoughts on Facebook, along with sharing photos from the film. One such photo he posted is of himself on a throne. It’s very Game of Thrones, but perfectly suits the criminal-king.

Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick were very enjoyable movies, and I’m very much looking forward to Riddick. Diesel has a lot of passion for the world-building and the character, and it clearly shows in the work — and not to mention on Facebook.

Another exciting thing is Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica and Karl Urban of Dredd joining the cast.

Oh, and for the premise?

“Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.”

Riddick returns to theaters September 6.
