Vin Diesel Says a Last Witch Hunter Sequel is Happening

Calling all Last Witch Hunter fans! According to a recent Collider interview with action star Vin Diesel, a sequel to the 2015 film The Last Witch Hunter is currently in the works at Lionsgate. No, really.

Despite horrendous reviews from critics and audiences alike (17% and 43% on RottenTomatoes) and a very mediocre box office take ($27.4 million in North America, $113 million in other territories for a total of $140.4 million worldwide versus a $90 million budget), Diesel claims that a follow-up feature is actively in the works.

“Lionsgate is coming and saying, ‘We’re putting a writer on for the next one,'” Diesel said. “That’s kinda cool! … And this is just recent, by the way. But it’s funny that you mentioned ‘Last Witch Hunter’ because I’m in a meeting with Lionsgate and they’re actively creating the sequel to ‘The Last Witch Hunter.'”

There are certainly cases in which a sequel to a horrible film does better both critically and commercially, but was anyone really wanting this? That answer must be yes, because it sounds like The Last Witch Hunter II may make its way to the big screen sooner rather than later.

In 2015, Diesel starred in The Last Witch Hunter, a dark fantasy action film directed by Breck Eisner. Within the film, Diesel portrays, Kaulder a witch hunter who was cursed by the Witch Queen with eternal life. Across the ages, Kaulder continued to hunt witches until the present day, when Kaulder finds himself in a race against time to prevent the Witch Queen from returning! Elijah Wood Rose Leslie, Julie Engelbrecht, Michael Caine co-star in the movie with Diesel.

The Last Witch Hunter is available on Digital HD and Blu-ray/DVD.
