Vin Diesel hasn’t done much in recent years outside of reprising his role as Dom in the Fast and the Furious films. And why would he? Those things print money hand over fist. There was the voice of Groot in Guardians of The Galaxy, but it seems like its been forever since he starred in a feature role in something not involving insane car stunts.
Now here is Diesel, fighting off witches and the occult in The Last Witch Hunter, which looks like an amalgamation of about a dozen other movies.
Here is the first teaser trailer for The Last Witch Hunter:
I’m not sure what direction The Last Witch Hunter is headed regarding rating, audience, demographic, etc. But that trailer did have an MTV logo attached to it, so it might be safe to assume this will be a watered-down PG-13 film looking for a franchise.
Aside from Vin Diesel, The Last Witch Hunter stars Elijah Wood and Michael Caine – who is working hard for those paychecks – along with a cavalcade of young talent. The film hits theaters October 23.
What are your thoughts on this attempt to get Vin Diesel into another franchise?
