For nearly two years Vin Diesel has been attached to The Last Witch Hunter, but it’s only now that the film is moving forwards, with the news that Elijah Wood has signed on to co-star, with Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie and Michael Caine also amongst the cast, according to THR.
Diesel will play one of the last remaining witch hunters, who has to partner with his longtime enemy (Rose Leslie) to prevent an evil coven from destroying New York City. It’s not clear eactly who Caine and Wood will play.
Breck Eisner is set to direct the film, working from a screenplay by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold). Filming will start later this month.
