Vin Diesel has battled cops, monsters, mercenaries, terrorists, precocious children, and now he’s going to be adding witches to that impressive cinematic resume. Although from the sounds of it, this thing might be a comedy, but don’t hold me to it.
In any case, Diesel is currently in talks to star in “The Last Witch Hunter”, which would find the “Fast Five” star playing “the last remaining witch hunters, who is charged with discouraging a group of witches and warlocks from reproducing.”
“Discouraging a group of witches and warlocks from reproducing?” Yeah, that sounds like a comedy to me. Unless by “discouraging” they actually mean decapitate or stake them, then no, that wouldn’t make this a comedy.
Then again, considering Vin Diesel’s busy schedule, what with the two “The Fast and Furious” movies coming and a dozen other titles on his plate, chances of this one happening soon is pretty nil.
When it does happen, though, Breck Eisner (“The Crazies” remake) will direct from a script by Cory Goodman. Emmett/Furla Films are producing for Lionsgate-Summit.
