Now that a new entry into the Chronicles of Riddick saga is no longer just a dream project for Vin Diesel fans, details are slowly but surely making their way to the surface. It started with news that writer-director David Twohy would be returning along with Diesel, progressed a bit with out-of-context concept art (as seen here) and now thanks to Shock Till You Drop, we have an official synopsis for Riddick (as it is currently called):

"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."

So, really, it doesn't sound all that divergent from what we've seen in the previous two films, but I guess Riddick fighting aliens on desolate planets followed by other various acts of badassery is probably what people expect from the franchise. But what say you? What do you want to see in a new Riddick film?
