New Riddick film plot surprises

ChroniclesofRiddick.jpgSo the new plot for the upcoming Riddick film has been revealed, and there's an interesting closing sentence that has me curious. We had been told that they were toning back from the second film which had gone far too epic, and returning to the Pitch Black feel.

Well the plot outline gives us that, until the closing line.

Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) 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 his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.

That's the plot for the Riddick film that ShockTillYouDrop managed to get a hold of, and it sounds pretty interesting and spot on for giving us something like Pitch Black but more, with the potential of focussing on that character of Riddick and his self-centred view of life and the Universe.

Then there's that closing line, “...before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.”.

Wait a moment, doesn't that sound like it's suddenly leaping into an epic film again? Am I mistakingly reading an old story? Considering he has to go back and save his entire home planet it doesn't sound like a few closing scenes on the end, it sounds like the main drive of the film. So the more I picture it in my head the more it's turning out to be The Chronicles of Riddick.

In that film we open with him being pursued and fighting for survival, taking people down and everything that the opening blurb suggests, then he's caught in a big space opera epic where he has to save his home planet.

To me that doesn't sound like the smaller scale of Pitch Black, or maybe the first hald or less does and the rest of the film is going back to that epic scale.
