The witching hour will begin a year from now. An October 23, 2015, release has been set for Summit Entertainment’s supernatural actioner The Last Witch Hunter, from director Breck Eisner. The pic follows an immortal witch hunter (Vin Diesel) who partners with his natural enemy, a female witch, to stop the covens of NYC from unleashing a plague on humanity. The cast also includes Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Michael Caine and Julie Engelbrecht. Summit is releasing the film the weekend before Halloween against New Line’s untitled horror pic and Universal’s Jem And The Holograms. It will arrive a week after Universal horror flick Crimson Peak from Guillermo del Toro.
