Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Summit Entertainment has made a pre-emptive mid-six figures buy for writer Cory Goodman's (The Brood) pitch of The Last Witch Hunter. Summit is looking at this project as a potential franchise.

Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is currently putting together a deal where he will produce and direct this film.

The story centers around one of the last witch hunters on earth. This person keeps the population of witches and warlocks at a reasonable level. They are about to start repopulating a lot more than they should unless he can prevent them from doing so.
