Vin Diesel's latest Chronicles of Riddick movie will have another script submitted this Friday (May 8).

Titled Riddick 4: Furya, it's been in development for quite some time now, following the success of 2013's Riddick (nearly $100m at the global box office is no small feat).

The veteran A-lister announced the update via Instagram over the weekend.

In a video filmed at home, Vin told his followers: "I don't know how we've been quarantined, but we have. And yet Friday arriving in this house is like [singing], 'It's Friday then it's Saturday and Sunday! Friday then it's Saturday and Sunday!'"

His caption also read: "Happy Furyan Friday... The latest Chronicles of Riddick script comes in next week. GRRR!".

This action-packed movie franchise debuted two decades ago with Pitch Black, introducing Vin's anti-hero Richard B Riddick, a Furyan warrior known to be the last of his kind.

Four years later, a sequel titled The Chronicles of Riddick arrived in cinemas, where the star was joined by the likes of Westworld's Thandie Newton, The Boys' Karl Urban and Dame Judi Dench.

The third instalment Riddick took nine years to make it to the big screen, while Furya faces a similar amount of time before its finally released – let's hope it's worth the wait.
