Riddick is back!

Because some times it's best for a headline to just speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Amen.

Indeed, the above shot is of Riddick, the cult character made popular by action dude Vin Diesel in the films Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. Well, this shot is from the franchise's latest installment, appropriately enough titled Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.

Currently in production under the guidance of director David Twohy, Dead Man Stalking is rumoured to be more in scope and tone with Pitch Black than its grandiose follow up. I dug both films a lot, but I'm looking forward to a return to the franchise's roots. Too be honest, as long as Riddick is being a bad ass, I'm happy. He's one of the best antiheroes put on film.

The latest Riddick also stars Battlestar: Galactica babe Katee Sackoff, Jordi Molla and Nolan Funk. As for the plot? Read on:

"Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction."

No word yet on when Dead Man Stalking hits theatres.
