Vin Diesel took to his Facebook page to update his 63 million-plus followers (yeah, that) on the world of Riddick. It seems that Riddick is knocking on the door of the heralded $100 million club -- its box office so far is $98 million. “I’m just excited and happy, and I’m shouting out to you guys to say thank you,” Diesel said.
Universal Studios has clearly noticed, and there is also some news when it comes to the Riddick DVD.
“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 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.”
Then, came the big news! “Universal also says they want to develop the next one!”
