Vin Diesel talks “Riddick” issues with Facebook fans

By Sean O’Connell Vin Diesel is no stranger to social media, using Facebook and Twitter as a way to open a dialogue with his fans. He teased a “Fast Five” trailer for his Facebook followers earlier this year. And now he’s taking to the ‘Net to ask devoted fans what he should do about a third “Riddick” picture, which appears to be mired in Development Hell.

Updating his followers on the status of a new “Riddick” film, Diesel hinted that pay scale might be an obstacle to getting the right R-rated tone he believes the movie will need.

Diesel posts:

“[David Twohy] the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news.

We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch…in order for us to make a true R-rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the Find me Guilty experience (which I wouldn’t have changed for the world). Money is always second to art, integrity and spirit…but the real issue is deeper. Can I suspend my life, to momentarily venture to that dark place…called Riddick. Now, I need to hear from Our collective…you.”

Money probably isn’t as big of an issue. Diesel likely could live off his “Fast & Furious” cash for decades. And if he wants another “Riddick,” it will happen. But will fans demand it? How will they respond?

Well, they’ve already weighed in! Diesel later posted:

“I have read so many interesting and intelligent responses to today’s post.

You all have such great insight… I truly love Our page.

Thank you again for taking the time to weigh in.”

Follow Diesel on Facebook for updates, but we’re anxious to see where this goes.
