Riddick star and meme machine Vin Diesel posted a video on Facebook explaining that while the third film in his action/sci-fi franchise wasn’t exactly a critical hit and didn’t make mega-bucks, a fourth film looks likely.

“Universal just called me and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts,” the star said in a Facebook video.

“There’s no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. And you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated R; and to do it with such a low budget.

“It’s a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much. Yeah, I’m excited, and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one.”
