© Facebook / Vin Diesel Vin Diesel rules as 'Riddick' Feb. 22, 2013, 8:42 PM EST Entertainment Tonight. "Fast & Furious" star Vin Diesel is returning for a third time to his Riddick character this fall, and he's teasing fans with a brand-new image of his title character sitting on a throne with a troubled brow, very reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger's pose at the end of "Conan the Barbarian." Coincidence? Bing: Vin Diesel sings Rihanna Diesel posted the shot on his Facebook page with the accompanying caption: "It has been 9 years since 'The Chronicles of Riddick' was released... all along I knew I would eventually have to return to that dark place, the mind of an Alpha Furyan..." Following 2000's "Pitch Black" and 2004's "The Chronicles of Riddick," the new sci-fi film, simply titled Riddick, is set to hit theaters and IMAX on Sept. 6 and reunites Diesel with director David Twohy for a more pared-down film in which our anti-hero finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon, he catches the attention of two passing ships one carrying a new breed of mercenary, and the other captained by a man from Riddick's past. Also co-produced by Diesel, the "Riddick" cast includes Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Jordi Molla and Matt Nable. .
