Is Vin Diesel going to have to choke a witch? Chances are pretty high with his upcoming century-spanning fantasy film, The Last Witch Hunter, that sees him as the titular hero tracking down the broom-riding bad lasses.
Though there’s nothing in terms of footage that has boiled over from the promotional pot, Mr. Diesel has been keen to keep his fans interested in a film that won’t see him growling like an engine whilst being sat behind one for a change, thanks to a brand new close up of the man himself. He’s intense, he’s thoughtful, he’s hairier than we’ve ever seen him. Look on and tremble at the untrimmed Diesel. Tremble, we say!

As you can see in the photo, the actor's character has a completely different look than his iconic Dom Toretto in Furious 7, arriving this April. The actor also shared the following message with his fans, which you can check out below.
"It is a rare thing, to have produced two movies with completely contrasting characters, that come out in the same year... Furious 7 on April 3rd... The Last Witch Hunter on October 23rd... However, exactly fifteen years ago, two movies were released in the same day, with entirely different characters... Boiler Room and Pitch Black. Thanks for always believing in me... blessed, inspired... and I feel like I'm just getting started..."

Fresh from the news last week about a new Escape from New York Blu-ray release, word has reached Deadline that Snake Plissken will be returning to the big screen in a new remake.
News has emerged that 20th Century Fox has won the remake rights to John Carpenter’s cult 1981 action sci-fi film about a dystopian future where eye-patched convict Plissken (Kurt Russell) is sent into a maximum security prison built on what used to be Manhattan to rescue the President.
While a remake of a beloved classic never goes down well with fans, their anger may be cooled somewhat by the presence of John Carpenter, who has come on board as an executive producer.
There have been a few attempts over recent years to remake the film, with Joel Silver (The Matrix) at one point attached to produce, before New Line Cinema and Breck Eisner (The Crazies) were considering making it. »

A remake of John Carpenter's then-futuristic action thriller Escape from New York has been gestating since as far back as 2007, with several attempts to get the project off the ground falling apart. Directors like Len Wiseman and Breck Eisner have been linked to the project along with leading men like Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner and most recently Charlie Hunnam being linked to the role. However, none of those attempts had the cooperation of John Carpenter, and Deadline reports that's exactly what's happening with the latest attempt as 20th Century Fox has just won the remake rights to the 1981 film. More below! For those who aren't aware, the original film followed Kurt Russell played the bad ass Snake Plissken, an eye-patched convict who was tasked with rescuing the President of the United States after Air Force One goes missing after crashing in New York. That wouldn't be a big deal »
