New Trailer For The Last Witch Hunter Vin Diesel's war on Witch massDo you know what it’s like to live forever? You may not, but Vin Diesel certainly does. At least in The Last Witch Hunter, which has just released its full trailer.The movie, directed by Breck Eisner, finds Diesel as an immortal warrior who ends up in present-day New York having to face down a powerful witch queen intent on unleashing a terrible plague that could wipe out the human race.His chief ally in the fight, however, is a female witch (Game Of Thrones’ Rose Leslie), who teams up with him to help take down the rising evil.

First Look: Vin Diesel Broods 13th Century-Style in ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ Vin Diesel is taking a break from stealing cars and guarding the galaxy to step back in time. Our first look at Breck Eisner‘s The Last Witch Hunter reveals a 13th-century version of Diesel’s immortal title character. Check out the first The Last Witch Hunter image after the jump. (Note: the header pic is from Riddick, not The Last Witch Hunter). The first Last Witch Hunter image comes from (where else?) Vin Diesel’s Facebook page. His original caption is below. Apparently being a witch hunter in the Middle Ages involves lots of fur and facial hair.

To be honest, we were beginning to wonder whether it had boiled dry in the development cauldron. Not so! Summit is adding eye of newt Game Of Thrones’ Rose Leslie to the mix.Breck Eisner is still attached to direct the film, which will see Diesel as a semi-immortal witch hunter who finds himself in modern-day New York continuing the mission he’s sworn to complete.

Jaden Smith
You may have forgotten all about the Jaden Smith-led Karate Kid re-whatever that Sony put out in 2010, but the studio hasn't, and they've just proven it by signing a director to help bring them a sequel.

Breck Eisner to direct Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan in The Karate Kid 2 – Four years after THE KARATE KID returned to theaters in a film featuring no karate, we are getting a sequel that will reunite Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. This time, however, the man behind the camera will be Breck Eisner.
