It’s been a couple of years since we heard anything about **The Last Witch Hunter, which promised to pit Vin Diesel against the crone-tastic forces of supernatural evil. To be honest, we were beginning to wonder whether it had boiled dry in the development cauldron. Not so! Summit is adding eye of newt Game Of Thrones’ Rose Leslie to the mix{ =nofollow}.

Breck Eisner is still attached to direct the film, which will see Diesel play a semi-immortal witch hunter who finds himself in modern-day New York continuing the mission he’s sworn to complete. His latest quest finds him trying to stop a villainous witch queen from finding the relic that will allow her to unleash a terrible plague upon humanity.

Leslie, who is still best known as Ygritte in Game Of Thrones (all together now, “You ner nuthin’, Jon Snerw!”) is aboard as a witch who joins forces with the hunter to help combat the threat. It’s always nice when opposing forces can work together, right?

There’s no word on when this one might kick off shooting, though the script has already been through the hands of Cory Goodman, D.W. Harper, Burk Shapless, Matt Sazama and Melisa Wallack.

As for Leslie, she’s worked on horror movie Honeymoon and has just shot indie drama Sticky Notes.
