Guys, what if Vin Diesel, changed history? That’s the basic route that’s being taken with “The Last Witch Hunter,” a new supernatural action film starring the “Fast & Furious” anchor. “Vin’s character has inextricably shaped the history that we live with today — and nobody knows it,” director Breck Eisner told EW. “We posit the battle between witches and humans began with the Black Plague, an incredibly powerful global curse by witches.”
So that’s the basic foundation of this movie, which also features Michael Caine, Rose Leslie, and Elijah Wood, in the story that follows Kaulder, who is cursed with immortality, and spends his time hunting witches, until of course, he has to fight to save the human race. Here’s the synopsis:
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
“The Last Witch Hunter” arrives on October 23rd. [Collider]
