It's been quite some time since we've heard anything on Breck Eisner's THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, with our last report on the film coming way back in May of last year when sales on the pic were taking place in Cannes with a scheduled start of production set for February 2014. Well, it's February now and the film still isn't in front of cameras, but that doesn't mean the project isn't happening. Quite the opposite actually as star Vin Diesel took to his Facebook to tease some early pre-production art for the film.
Yesterday Vin Diesel posted a new picture on his Facebook page featuring some concept art for THE LAST WITCH HUNTER. If you zoom in on the top right corner of the picture you'll see the logo for the film. Diesel also posted this note along with the image below: "I will fill you all in later… but this meeting went well." Sounds like this one is a GO!
THE LAST WITCH HUNTER will focus on Vin Diesel's character, who...
..."is one of the last in a long tradition of witch hunters. When a group of witches and warlocks join forces to suddenly and forcefully expand their numbers, however, it’s up to this guy to stop them before their population gets out of control."
The movie still hasn't received a green light, but if Diesel's meeting went well, that could change very soon.
If THE LAST WITCH HUNTER does go into production, Breck Eisner (THE CRAZIES, SAHARA) will be directing from a script by Cory Goodman (PRIEST). Let's hope we hear news on it going forward soon! This one sounds like it could be a lotta fun.
