The Last Witch Hunter already has something of an international flavour to its cast, with American and British actors aboard behind lead Vin Diesel. Now here comes Julie Engelbrecht to represent Germany.

The actress, cast following a global search, is set to play the Witch Queen, a nasty villain planning to unleash terrible evil upon mankind. Diesel will be an immortal witch hunter who catches up with his nemesis in present-day New York as she gathers the city’s covens to cook up her diabolical plan.

To stop her, Diesel’s character must join forces with Rose Leslie’s witch, who decides to do the right thing instead of cackling about eye of newt.

The rest of the Witch Hunter cast includes Elijah Wood, Michael Caine and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, with Breck Eisner preparing to call the shots from a script that began life with a Cory Goodman pitch that was subsequently re-written by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. And that’s following work by D.W. Harper and Melisa Wallack… Here’s hoping the resulting brew doesn’t suffer from the ol’ too many cooks problem.
