Hobbit joins Riddick for Last Witch Hunter

Elijah Wood will star opposite Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie and Michael Caine in Lionsgate’s “The Last Witch Hunter”.

Breck Eisner is directing the film from a Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama screenplay based on Cory Goodman’s pitch. Production is due to get underway later this month.

“The Last Witch Hunter” follows a witch hunter (Diesel) who teams up with his enemy – a female witch – to put a stop to a plague on humanity unleashed by the covens of New York City.

Producers are Mark Canton and Bernie Goldmann with Diesel. Samantha Vincent and Adam Goldworm are exec producing.

For now, you can catch Wood in the final season of “Wilfred” on FXX.
