So, you may not know this, but Vin Diesel has become quite the box office draw recently. Starring in a film that makes $1.5 billion dollars will do that for a career.
With this weight behind him, which he has not experienced since the early noughties, it seems Summit Entertainment want to be in the Vin Diesel business.
Later this year, Summit will be releasing Vin Diesel’s latest film, The Last Witch Hunter. However, it would seem that Summit are so enthused with the final product, that they have already green-lit a sequel for the film.
The Last Witch Hunter tells the tale of… the last witch hunter. After killing the queen of the witches, he was cursed with immortality, and forced to outlive everyone he ever loved. However, centuries later, the Queen has been reborn and he must kill the queen again or watch humanity fall.
Personally, I am not overly excited. While we have only seen the first teaser trailer so far, the story does not sound like anything we have not already seen. However, there is still plenty of time between now and October. Maybe between now and then, I will see what Summit clearly sees in the film.
