I Ygritte nothing, Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie to star with Vin Diesel in Last Witch Hunter
The world grew to love the redheaded upstart Ygritte in HBO’s hit series ‘Game of Thrones,’ and the beautiful actor is joining Vin Diesel in a new film called ‘The Last Witch Hunter.’ That actor, pictured above, is Rose Leslie and she has landed a part in the new project that Breck Eisner is directing for Summit Entertainment.
The film, a supernatural action movie about (you guessed it) witches, doesn’t have a release date yet but casting is starting to heat-up once again. The story will follow Vin Diesel, a man that is part supernatural/part human himself, hunting down evil wherever it may be hiding.
The film will have a modern-setting, right here in New York City, but more details will be released at a later date. Right now we know that Diesel will be squaring off against a very powerful witch-queen while protecting an ancient relic, when the film releases in the summer of 2015 most likely. Leslie will take on the role of a good-witch, opposite Diesel.
Cory Goodman and D.W. Harper wrote the original script, it was then edited by Melisa Wallack. Producing the film are Mark Canton, Bernie Goldmann and Vin Diesel.
