Karl Urban brings the Necromonger awesomeness to the new Riddick sequel?

Vin Diesel and David Twohy's new Riddick sequel just got some great news! Rumor has it Karl Urban is ready to reprise his role as the power-hungry Necromonger Vaako, from The Chronicles of Riddick . Hell to the yes.

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the mulleted Necromonger, who's the husband to Thandies Newton's character Dame Vaako, will reappear in the third Riddick installment.

Last we heard about his character (spoilers) was, the third film would reveal the softer side of Vaako. Perhaps he'll be showing off some of his nobler intentions in the Necromonger world (if that's even possible). Either way, this is a good sign for a degree of continuity between the second and third movies.
