Vin Diesel Will Play a Witch Hunter in an Upcoming Film

I...don't even really know what to make of this, so I'm just going to let you guys have at it. I've just learned that Vin Diesel and Elijah Wood have teamed up for a new project that's currently filming in which the former will play an immortal witch hunter. Simply titled THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, the film is being directed by Breck Eisner, who brought us the 2010 remake of The Crazies (which is still hard for me to get through to this day).

Honestly, this movie sounds like a mix between The Chronicles of Riddick and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so... take from that what you will (I'm still trying to figure it out myself). There's not much other information available yet, including what role Wood will play, but Michael Caine is also among the cast. Oscar nominee Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club) and Cory Goodman (Priest) collaborated on the screenplay -- which should be interesting to say the least.

Here's the synopsis:

From Summit Entertainment. Tormented by the loss of his family and cursed with immortal life, the last witch hunter (Vin Diesel) is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history.

It's being described as an action/fantasy, but it sounds like it's also got some horror elements. Plus, it's coming to theaters right around Halloween next year. What do you think so far?

THE LAST WITCH HUNTER will open in wide release on October 23, 2015.
