Thrones Star Joins Vin Diesel’s “Witch Hunter”

Rose Leslie, better known as the red-haired wilding and Jon Snow’s love interest Ygritte in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has scored the female lead role opposite Vin Diesel in Breck Eisner’s “The Last Witch Hunter” at Summit Entertainment.

Diesel plays a semi-immortal witch hunter wandering the streets of modern New York City forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing plague upon humanity.

Burk Sharpless, Matt Sazama and Melisa Wallack recently did some work on the script. Filming is slated to begin in August in Pittsburgh.
