2015 is setting up to be one of the most impressive years for movies that Hollywood has seen in a long time. We have the return of some of the biggest franchises to date with STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON & JURASSIC PARK to exciting new films like ANT-MAN, INHERENT VICE & MORTDECAI. The fall of 2015 just got a little more exciting for film fans. Summit Entertainment’s THE LAST WITCH HUNTER will open with a wide release on October 23, 2015. Starring Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, and Michael Caine.
THE LAST WITCH HUNTER is currently still in production and tells the story of Kaulder (Diesel) the last witch hunter who is tormented by the loss of his family and is cursed with immortal life.He has been battling witches for centuries and finds himself in modern-day New York City where he is all that stands between humanity and the uprising of the most horrifying witches in history.
Directed by Breck Eisner (THE CRAZIES), a screenplay by Cory Goodman (PRIEST) with a rewrite by Melisa Wallack (DALLAS BUYERS CLUB) THE LAST WITCH HUNTER is currently set up against an untitled horror film and JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS for competition on opening weekend. If Diesel’s fantasy/adventure movies of the past show us anything, it’s that there is an audience looking for well done action flick as RIDDICK proved bringing in $98 million worldwide in the boxoffice on a $38 million budget.
