The Crazies director Breck Eisner is set to direct a new film that might possibly star Vin Diesel called The Witch Hunter. Diesel is currently in talks for the role, but this seems like a movie I could see him taking on.
The story follows an immortal witch hunter "who partners with his natural enemy, a female witch, to stop the covens of New York City from unleashing a plague on humanity." The movie is being developed over at Summit Entertainment, and they want Diesel to play the immortal Witch Hunter.
Hopefully this ends up being better than the last couple of witch movies that have been made like Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Nicolas Cage's Season of the Witch. Those are the only two that stick out in my mind right now, and they both were pretty bad.
I liked what Eisner did with The Crazies, so hopefully he can take this Cory Goodman-scripted project and turn it into something worth getting excited about.
