Apart from that, he is also set to voice Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 once that film goes into production, although doing so takes a lot less time out of his schedule. Furya is the name of Riddick's homeworld, which he was working to save in Riddick. The synopsis of the movie reads, "Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to Furya to save it from destruction."
The tagline of the movie, as read by Diesel's son reads, "Everyone wants to be a beast until it’s time to do what real beasts do.” There is no release date of the movie yet and there is no guarantee when this movie will be made, but we certainly hope that Vin Diesel has another chance to reprise his iconic role.
