Universal Pictures has announced it will release the sci-fi pic Riddick in U.S. theaters, including IMAX, on September 6, 2013. Riddick is the third chapter of the saga that began with 2000’s Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles Of Riddick. The film reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and The Fast And The Furious star Vin Diesel, who reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.
