Vin Diesel talks The Last Witch Hunter sequel

New, 3 comments

Vin Diesel's The Last Witch Hunter hasn't even been released, but there's already talk of a sequel.

In an interview with Complex Magazine, Diesel confirmed that during production on his latest film, studio executives stopped by during a shoot to ask about a second installment.

"The top brass of the company were there one day while Michael Caine and I were doing a scene together, and came by the trailer at the end of the day and said, 'Hey, we want to get started with a sequel right away,'" Diesel told the magazine.

The actor added that the possibility of a sequel didn't surprise him and was one of the main reasons he signed on to the project in the first place. Still, he admitted that while talks for a sequel have already begun, nothing had been finalized.

"Maybe we should release the film first."

It's not like Diesel has a light workload over the next couple of years, either. The actor is currently in pre-production for the eighth Fast and Furious installment (being directed by Straight Outta Compton's F. Gary Gray) and will also reprise his role as Groot in the second Guardians of the Galaxy film.

The Last Witch Hunter will hit theaters tomorrow.
