Vin Diesel has already had a hugely successful 2015 and he is set to return to the big screen with his new film The Last Witch Hunter.

The Last Witch Hunter

The Last Witch Hunter is set to be another action-packed role for the popular actor and a sequel is already believed to be in the pipeline, despite the fact the first film has not yet hit the big screen.

The movie marks the return of Breck Eisner to the director's chair for the first time since horror movie The Crazies back in 2010 and it will be the fifth feature film of his directing career.

The Last Witch Hunter will sees Eisner team up with Diesel for the first time, while Cory Goodman, Matt Sazama, and Burk Sharpless have teamed up to pen the screenplay.

Diesel has always seemed to thrive in these kinds of movies and roles and I cannot wait to see him in action in the title role.

A terrific cast has been assembled for the film, as Elijah Woody, Rose Leslie, Michael Caine, and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson are all also on board what is promising to be a great supernatural ride.

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 is a movie that has been on the cards for some time and Timur Bekmambetov was originally on board to direct the film, before being replaced by Eisner.

Diesel announced earlier this year that Lionsgate were already moving forward with a second film and this could well become another successful franchise for the actor.

Diesel has already enjoyed billion dollar success with Fast & Furious 7 this year - which remains one of the highest grossing films of 2015 - and it is always great to see him back in another major leading role.

There are so many terrific looking movies on the horizon this autumn and The Last Witch Hunter looks set to be one that's not to be missed.

The Last Witch Hunter is released 21st October.
