Vin Diesel is very excited this morning, and he has released a new video on his personal page to dance about it. He wants to thank fans for making Riddick the number one DVD in sales this month, and announced that Universal wants to develop a sequel.
Here's what he had to say, thanking his longtime fanbase for their support of the R rated franchise adventure, which landed on Blu-ray and DVD January 14th. (Warning, you have to get past about 3 minutes of Vin dancing and lip-syncing before he drops the news).
"I'm just excited, and happy, and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There's no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated 'R,' and to do it with such a low budget. It's a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much. Yeah, I'm excited, and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one."
Riddick was released September 6th, 2013 and stars Vin Diesel, Jordi Mollà, Matthew Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Conrad Pla. The film is directed by David Twohy.
