Vin Diesel talks XXX 3, Kojak, The Last Witch Hunter & Hannibal

10 months agoby:

In an interview with Collider, Vin Diesel gave updates on a few of his planned projects, including his long in development HANNIBAL biopic. We'll start with his THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, which will be Vin Diesel's next film. Rose Leslie just recently joined the upcoming movie, and Diesel says Michael Caine has been cast in THE LAST WITCH HUNTER as well.

I’m about to do a movie with Breck Eisner called The Last Witch Hunter where I play a 700-year-old New Yorker, which should be a lot of fun. Working opposite Michael Caine will be a blast. I’ve always wanted to work with Michael Caine so it’ll be the first time I get to work with Michael Caine. Rose Leslie is also gonna be opposite me, she’s amazing in Game of Thrones.

Vin Diesel goes on to say after THE LAST WITCH HUNTER, he'll be doing a movie version of KOJAK for Universal before he begins work on XXX 3.

Finally, Diesel says he still wants to make a biopic about Carthaginian military commander Hannibal, a project he has been talking about for a very long time.

And of course, the trilogy of Hannibal, the thing I’m most precious about and the thing that keeps me—it was just my birthday a couple of days ago and I woke up and I started to count my blessings, as we all do on our birthday, we count our blessing and then we think ‘How can I grow as a person, and how can I improve?’  And then I immediately went to, ‘I haven’t made Hannibal yet.

I really hope someday Vin Diesel will be able to do his HANNIBAL biopic, and I also think a KOJAK movie starring the actor could be a lot of fun. However, I have almost no interest in seeing a third XXX film. Which Diesel project are you the most interested in seeing?

Vin Diesel can be seen heard next in Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY on August 1, 2014.

Awesome, I'm a pretty big fan of Vin. This Last Witch Hunter movie sounds like pure entertainment, and an Hannibal biopic will be extremely interesting.

XXX 3 : More X than ever before

I like Vin Diesel and he seems like a good person but I don't know if he can pull off a trilogy. I think he might be reaching too far on that one. I think Kojack is his best bet. He definetely needs to start moving away from the Fast & Furious/ XXX stuff soon or thats the only work he will get. I think everyone likes him enough that he can pull off a great or fun character but he is not a leading man unfortunately. He needs that all star cast for Fast n Furious. It wouldn't be the same without

Didn't know Michael Caine was in this Last Witch Hunter movie. Even if it is just a paycheck role, that's got my attention. If he can muster the funds to do Hannibal, I'm all for it. I do think Vin Diesel bears a striking resemblance to Telly Savalas, I just pray the script is worthy. And I didn't watch the first XXX, so I don't need to see him do that again, either.

I'd watch Hannibal. He certainly has great affection for the role. He'll put his all into it.

Can't wait to see him as Groot.

Interestingly enough, it doesn't sound like another Fast and Furious film is on the way (at least right away), with all of these other projects happening so soon.
