Butcher Bay sequel in the works

Speaking to film site comingsoon.net, star Vin Diesel reveals Riddick will return--and little else.

In a lengthy interview with the well-respected film and TV news site Comingsoon.net, Vin Diesel recently talked--at length--about the DVD of The Chronicles of Riddick, which went on sale Tuesday.

Besides saying he considered the sci-fi fantasy "his Lord of the Rings," Diesel also mentioned the "Unrated Directors Cut" version of the DVD sports "a playable chapter" of the critically acclaimed game The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. However, the interview did not specify whether or not it was a new chapter, although it is listed as "the first level of the Xbox game" on Amazon.com.

More exciting was Diesel's revelation that a sequel for Butcher Bay is in the works. While expressing his hope that The Chronicles of Riddick would find better success on DVD than it did in the theaters, where it only grossed $60 million, well below its $100-million-plus budget, Diesel said "There's a sequel to the video game being made."

Unfortunately, that's all he said regarding the Butcher Bay sequel, and attempts to contact Diesel's game company, Tigon Studios, were unsuccessful as of press time. This leaves many questions: Will the game be developed by Butcher Bay developer Starbreeze, which recently inked a deal with Majesco to develop next-generation titles? Will it debut for next-generation consoles or, like Butcher Bay, be an Xbox game that will eventually make its way to PC? GameSpot News will provide the answers to these questions as they become available.

I'd buy anything starring Vin Diesel.

I think the reason the movie did so poorly is because the trailer made it look too stupid with all the people in medieval like costumes.

well, in march, Vin Diesel confirmed that he had written a script for 2 movie sequels to TCOR, making it a trilogy. this is like star wars stuff going on here, so much stuff is being made....a game already made (more games to be made), pitch black, TCOR movie, and more sequels.

I would really want to see another Chronicles of Riddick game that is just as well as the first one. Please Tigon Studios, give us what we Riddick fans want to see and bring in a new sequel to make us feel happy. You're the best, Tigon Studios.

I'd love a Butcher Bay sequel, hopefully it comes out for 360 and other next-gen consoles. First post for the first time too!
