The Last Witch Hunter (2015) Poster


Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Vin Diesel had been a Dungeons and Dragons player for many years (he taught Judi Dench to play on the set of The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)). The main character in this movie was partly based on his old D&D character (Melkor) who was a Witch Hunter. He used one of the 3rd party D&D books to create the character class as he loved being a Ranger type but also like to use a few spells too.
The witch's nest and surrounding forest was constructed on an indoor rain set and was actually burned. It was made mainly from actual tree trunks and branches attached to welded steel frames.
The screenplay for this film was featured in the 2010 Blacklist; a list of the "most liked" unmade scripts of the year.
The Last Witch Hunter 2 was announced prior to the film's release, however after poor box office returns and disastrous reviews, the sequel is now in doubt.
Filming was initially delayed due to the death of Paul Walker, which delayed shooting for Furious 7 (2015).
