You won’t have to wait until Furious 8 comes out in 2017 to see Vin Diesel in action on the big screen. In October, audiences will get to see him as a witch hunter with some pretty incredible weaponry.
Lionsgate released the first teaser trailer for The Last Witch Hunter through MTV on Wednesday. In it, Diesel is told by Michael Caine that he is the only one who can save the world from danger. Apparently, witches are coming back to haunt modern New York.
It also appears that Game of Thrones’ Rose Leslie will be following Diesel around. Hopefully, she gets to tell him “You know nothing” at some point. Elijah Wood also co-stars.
Diesel has a whole arsenal of weapons to use, including a really cool flaming sword he gets to swing at the end. That’s a bit cooler than a sleek sports car, honestly.
The film is directed by Breck Eisner, whose credits include Sahara (2005) and The Crazies (2010). It hits theaters on Oct. 23, just in time to inspire Diesel fans to get flaming swords for their Halloween costumes.
Diesel can currently be seen in Furious 7, which has already made over $1 billion worldwide. Furious 8 opens in April 2017.
