Vin Diesel shares a photo of himself with a thick beard as a throwback lớn The Last Witch Hunter. Released in 2015, The Last Witch Hunter saw Diesel take on the role of Kaulder, the only being standing between humanity and the dark powers of history"s most terrifying witches. After killing the Witch Queen more than eight centuries ago, Kaulder becomes cursed with immortality & joins forces with a present-day witch-hunting group called the Axe & Cross when the Witch Queen returns.

The Last Witch Hunter earned mostly poor nhận xét from both audiences & critics, and currently sits at a dismal 17% on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite its mediocre box office performance, Diesel confirmed in 2020, while promoting Bloodshot, that a sequel to lớn The Last Witch Hunter was in the works. Information regarding the sequel has been hard to come by since the initial announcement, but Diesel hinted at the start of the pandemic that a The Last Witch Hunter 2 script was, in fact, being written. With Diesel"s current commitments lớn the final two installments of the Fast & Furious franchise, it"s unclear what the status of the project currently is.

While Diesel doesn"t explicitly say anything about The Last Witch Hunter 2 in the post, the caption could certainly be hinting that work is still ongoing on the sequel. Fast X filming is currently underway and Fast & Furious 11 also has yet khổng lồ be filmed, but it"s possible that, in his off-time, Diesel is still pushing forward with The Last Witch Hunter 2. It"s still far too early for any official plot or cast information about the sequel, but it"s fair khổng lồ assume that, if a sequel does happen, Diesel will return as Kaulder.

Following Justin Lin"s recent departure from Fast X after production on the film had already started, reports of Diesel"s unprofessional behavior on phối began to surface. It remains unclear if there is any truth to lớn these reports, but if Diesel is as difficult lớn work with as some have suggested, it"s possible that The Last Witch Hunter 2 will have more trouble getting made.

Remember The Last Witch Hunter? There’s a good chance you don’t because the movie had a reported $90 million production budget và only went on to lớn accumulate $27.4 million at the domestic box office.

While chatting with Diesel for his March 13th release Bloodshot, I asked him how he forges forward when a passion project doesn’t pan out as hoped. Using The Last Witch Hunter as an example, Diesel explained:

“When a Last Witch Hunter comes out and it doesn’t destroy the box office you, under the old thinking, would go, ‘Well, maybe I should focus on something else.’ But nowadays what’s fascinating is that movies find you somehow.”

From the distributor perspective, big budget movies finding an audience kind of has to lớn happen during the theatrical rollout khổng lồ justify the expense. But Diesel does make a good point when you consider how accessible movies become thanks lớn streaming and VOD platforms after their big screen runs. If getting eyes on your finished sản phẩm is the main concern, box office receipts aren’t the be all, over all:

“As an artist, the more experienced I get, the more I am appreciating just the fact that my work somehow finds you và that you get lớn experience it at your own time và at your own pace, và I’m less concerned - and maybe it’s because of accolades. Maybe it’s because I’m a part of Avengers or I’m a part of Disney, I’m a part of Guardians and I’m a part of Fast and I’ve had so much of that wonderful experience that I think the higher thinking becomes - when people tell me that they love the Witch Hunter, and they want to see Michael Caine & I go into another one, I go, ‘Wow!’”

You know what that “wow” reaction has lead to? Discussions about a Last Witch Hunter 2:

“Lionsgate is coming and saying, ‘We’re putting a writer on for the next one.’ That’s kinda cool! … & this is just recent, by the way. But it’s funny that you mentioned Last Witch Hunter because I’m in a meeting with Lionsgate và they’re actively creating the sequel lớn The Last Witch Hunter.”

So there you have it! There’s some movement over at Lionsgate on The Last Witch Hunter 2.
