Exclusive: Is Riddick Vin Diesel’s Favorite Film Franchise?
Vin Diesel just may be the happiest man in the world right now.
The NYC native just nabbed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and is gearing up to release Riddick, which just may be his favorite franchise. When we caught up with Diesel for the junket, he was all smiles talking about the film, and how much he relates to the character.
“I identify with the character,” explained Diesel. “And I think people identify with the character. How often do we celebrate a character who is overlooked … and is the recipient of so much prejudice.”
In the film, Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy. Check out what he had to say about the film below.
Riddick hits theaters September 6.
