The cast of Vin Diesel’s The Last Witch Hunter just made a precious new addition.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elijah Wood has joined the cast of the Lionsgate action film, which centers on “an immortal witch hunter (Diesel) who partners with a witch to stop New York City’s covens from unleashing a plague on the city.”
There’s no word on Wood’s role, but if there’s any justice in the world, he’ll play a witch who winds up on the receiving end of Diesel’s wrath. It just feels right.
In addition to Diesel and Wood, The Last Witch Hunter includes roles for Michael Caine and Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte on HBO’s Game of Thrones. The movie comes from director Breck Eisner and writers Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. Production begins this month.
