Man, does that Vin Diesel ever love his facebooks! Keeping his fans up to date is a major priority for the star, and today he's took to the site again to drop you a RIDDICK 2 update in the form of a new message and a new pic. Over to VD...

"You know I like to let you in on things, even before Hollywood knows...

Last night I was invited in to the editing room, to see the first cut of the new Riddick... WOW!!! P.s. I was so affected/excited... I couldn't sleep.


Ok Vin, settle down. Now where's that pic? Ah-ha...


Well, that's some weird composition right there. Looks like his shiny dome's been impaled on the end of a jagged rock. Best you could do, big guy? I think you've let your fans down with that if we're honest. Only way to make it up to 'em - give us a darn trailer already!

Official Synopsis:

'The latest chapter of the saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won't leave the planet without Riddick's head as their trophy.'

RIDDICK 2, or whatever it ends up being called - in fact hadn't they better get a wriggle on? - is scheduled for release sometime in 2013. For more pics, go HERE.
