Not the last appearance of the witch hunter.

The Last Witch Hunter only arrives in theaters on October 23, but apparently the studio is already planning a sequel.

The film’s star, Vin Diesel, said this on Facebook:

So the studio apparently is so excited by the Last Witch Hunter – The Axe and Cross franchise… that they are already commencing on the next one,” Diesel revealed on Facebook. “The first one doesn’t hit theaters until October 23rd, yet they want me to commit and already block out time to film it. As always, I love to hear your feedback…

I guess the studio know something I don’t, because the trailer looks thoroughly unimpressive to me.

Breck Eisner (The Crazies) directs. Vin Diesel is joined in the cast by Michael Caine, Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood.

The synopsis:

In ‘The Last Witch Hunter’, 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, theQueen 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.
