Vin Diesel gave his Facebook fans a special treat on Friday, February 22, when he shared a photo from his upcoming film "Riddick."

Diesel will be reprising his role as Richard B. Riddick in the film, which is the third movie in the "Riddick" franchise.

"It has been 9 years since 'The Chronicles of Riddick' was released... all along I knew I would eventually have to return to that dark place, the mind of an Alpha Furyan...," Diesel wrote as a caption for the photo on Facebook.

The 45-year-old actor is active on the social networking site and often shares personal photos and videos, including this video of him singing the Rihanna song "Stay."

"Riddick" is the follow-up film to the 2000 movie "Pitch Black" and the 2004 film "The Chronicles of Riddick." The new movie, simply titled "Riddick," will hit theaters on September 6.

Diesel is also set to reprise his role as Dominic Toretto in the film "Fast & Furious 6." The latest film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise reunites Diesel with Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster. Dwayne Johnson, who appeared in "Fast Five," will also return to the franchise in the role of Luke Hobbs.

"Fast & Furious 6" hits theaters on May 24. Check out the trailer below.
