Vin Diesel recently posted some updates on his Facebook page that suggest we might be seeing Riddick as early as January of next year. Principal photography wrapped recently on Riddick, the third film in a franchise that started with Pitch Black. While Diesel was hoping to see a release in 2012, this comes as a good sign that the studio is happy with what they’re seeing. That bodes well, not only for Riddick, but for the potential sequels if Riddick proves commercially successful. Be sure to check out some images from set here. The extensive cast includes Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Jordi Molla, Bokeem Woodbine, David Bautista, Matt Nable, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk, and Keri Hilson.
