Oscar-nominated writer Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club) has come aboard to provide a script polish for Summit Entertainment's supernatural thriller The Last Witch Hunter, which has Vin Diesel attached to star.
Cory Goodman (Priest, Apollo 18) and D.W. Harper (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) previously worked on the script, which focuses on an immortal witch hunter (Vin Diesel) who teams up with one of his enemies, a female witch, to stop a New York City coven from unleashing a deadly plague on humanity.
Breck Eisner (The Crazies) is directing, with Mark Canton, Vin Diesel and Bernie Goldmann producing. Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Eric Reid are serving as executive producers. It isn't known when production will begin, although star Vin Diesel revealed some pre-production artwork on his Facebook page last month.
