Last Witch Hunter is currently in production and stars Vin Diesel as Kaldur, an immortal warrior who has been battling witches for centuries, before he arrives in modern-day New York City. There, Kaldur finds an unlikely ally in a young sorceress (Game of Thrones alum Rose Leslie), who helps him in his quest to stop the covens of New York from unleashing a terrible plague upon humankind. Supporting cast members include Elijah Wood, Michael Caine, and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (A Walk Among the Tombstones).

Diesel has been promoting Last Witch Hunter through his popular Facebook page for a while now, having teased that the project is aiming to reach theaters by October of next year. Sure enough, Lionsgate has now officially scheduled the film to arrive on October 23rd, 2015, now that New Line Cinema has shifted The Conjuring 2 back away from that date (so that James Wan can direct the sequel). As it stands, Last Witch Hunter‘s opening weekend competition will include the live-action Jem and the Holograms movie and a currently-untitled horror film.

Directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies) and scripted by Cory Goodman (Priest), with a rewrite by Oscar-nominee Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club), Last Witch Hunter looks to fall closer to Diesel’s past B-movie action genre offerings – Riddick being the most recent example – rather than his big-budget franchise installments, a la Fast and the Furious and Guardians of the Galaxy (both of which have new chapters arriving over the next few years).
