THE LAST WITCH HUNTER is the intense, action-packed sci-fi adventure starring Vin Diesel, Michael Caine, Elijah Wood and Rose Lesley, from the visionary Director Breck Eisner and the producers of 300, Riddick and the Fast & Furious franchise.
Hundreds of years ago, the mighty warrior Kaulder (Diesel) vanquished the all-powerful Witch Queen, thus defeating the witches who had wreaked bloodshed on the world for centuries once and for all. But in moments before her death the Witch Queen cursed Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved family.
Michael Caine plays a priest and ‘keeper’ of Kaulder. Caine has also been known to play other ‘keeper’ type roles in films such as The Dark Knight and Kingsman: The Secret Service.
