Breck Eisner, the man behind 2010's remake of The Crazies, has signed on to direct the supernatural action project, The Last Witch Hunter. Deadline has the news, saying that Vin Diesel is in talks to headline.

The project, which hails from Cory Goodman (Priest) follows an immortal hunter forced to team with a witch, his prey and greatest enemy, to protect an evil force from destroying New York City.

Diesel can next be seen in May 24th's Fast & Furious 6, reprising his role as Dom Toretto in the all-star ensemble that also features Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Luke Evans and Gina Carano.

The Last Witch Hunter is set up through Summit Entertainment and Emmett/Furla.

This doesn't sound like a good idea for Vin at all.
I would only watch it if vin diesel was playing the witch.
If it's something more in the vein of the Blade films it could work.
*sees a person behind Priest is responsible for this. Runs away*
Yeah, it smells of Priest, Hanzel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, I Am Number 4, Legion, etc. Stinks of a February or random September release.

I wonder if Vin was humming this song in his head at the time?

when i was scrolling quickly I thought it was Tom Hardy
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Show me Rose Leslie, then I will pay attention.
Still not sure about this. Is Breck Eisner suddenly a good filmmaker now?
I'm with you. I'm rooting for Rose Leslie too.
Vin looks like the Barbarian from Diablo 2 & 3. I guess because I'm such a diehard fan of those games, that somehow makes me mildly interested in this.
my biggest fear is that the modern day scenes will mimic Underworld or I, Frankenstein. You know..trying way to be cool vs. just having a fun b-movie.
Agreed, they should totally be going for a Big Trouble in Little China/Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai vibe.

I thought it was going to take place in medieval times, not modern day. That actually makes me more interested.
I honestly felt like Vin should've kept his beard in the modern age scenes. He looks kinda out of place in the movie.
