You’re telling me Vin Diesel is playing an immortal witch hunter who’s teamed up with Elijah Wood and taught by Michael Caine? And he has a flaming sword? I’m in!
Lionsgate’s newest film, The Last Witch Hunter, features Vin Diesel in his first lead role in 7 years for a movie that doesn’t have ‘Fast‘ or ‘Riddick‘ in the title.
The Last Witch Hunter doesn’t look like a “good” movie but it does look like a lot of fun. Here’s the synopsis:
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
The Last Witch Hunter is directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies, Sahara) and also stars Rose Leslie, Olafur Darri Olafsson, and Julie Englebrecht.
The Last Witch Hunter arrives just in time for Halloween on October 23rd.
