The Last Witch Hunter has been cooking in the cauldron for years, but with filming currently underway, the Vin Diesel-starring fantasy action film is finally coming to fruition, and Summit Entertainment has penciled the picture in a calendar slot that's deep into next year's Halloween season.

Summit Entertainment announced today that The Last Witch Hunter will be released wide on October 23rd, 2015. Directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies remake), the film stars Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Julie Engelbrecht, and Michael Caine.

"From Summit Entertainment. Tormented by the loss of his family and cursed with immortal life, the last witch hunter (Vin Diesel) is all that stands between humanity and the combined forces of the most horrifying witches in history."
