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.
I had read that they were going back to Pitch Black, and while it sounds like much of the action could be tighter focused, like PB, the story and backstory provided in the Chronicles of Riddick are being retained. Given that I am actually a fan of tCoR, that makes me happy.
This isn’t official, and it isn’t even very widespread, so it is possible the story will be totally different. Let’s wait and see.
