Vin Diesel: I make these movies […] because somebody’s paying attention. That’s my motto about Hollywood and films, continuing these franchises. There’s two lines of thought in Hollywood, one is the audience doesn’t give a fuck — excuse me, it’s late, I’m in Riddick mode, you’re lucky I’m not killing you guys […] Then there’s that world-builder, that D&D player that’s really meticulous that believes the audience does care and can draw the similarity between Riddick’s headdress and the headdress worn by Linus Roache [in Chronicles of Riddick] who reveals in one moment that he is a Furyan that went the wrong path.
