The Last Witch Hunter has been progressing nicely and Vin Diesel has teased us with an image of director Breck Eisner looking over the early concept art for the horror film. Summit Entertainment will plan the US release with principal photography set to start February. I really like what I see so far and know that Vin Diesel is keeping them on their toes.
Synopsis: Five hundred years ago, war raged between humankind and witches, vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe, including Kaulder (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay an all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments before her death, the Queen exacted her revenge by cursing Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Kaulder has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones.
Today, he is the only one of his kind-the last witch hunter. With the help of Father Dolan, a Catholic priest, and a mystical arsenal hidden beneath New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, he continues to pursue the renegades and outlaws who endanger humanity. Chief among their adversaries is Belial, a powerful rebel witch who Kaulder believes has found a way to restore the Queen Witch to power and reignite her campaign to destroy the human world.
With the help of Chloe, a goodhearted young witch, Kaulder sets out to stop Belial before he can set his plan in motion, but allies in unexpected places keep the evil witch one step ahead in a cunning cat-and-mouse pursuit that will determine the survival of the human race.
Breck Eisner‘s The Last Witch Hunter has already cast Vin Diesel but has now grabbed Rose Leslie too. Vin Diesel will play a semi-immortal witch hunter who must team up with his natural enemy, a witch played by Rose Leslie. The two join forces to defeat a villainous witch queen…
Michael Caine will join Vin Diesel and Rose Leslie in The Last Witch Hunter. Summit is keeping Michael Caine’s role a secret for the time being, maybe he is the Devil. Summit’s The Last Witch Hunter will be directed by Breck Eisner. I am personally very stoked for every detail…
