Olafur Darri Olafsson, whose credits include “True Detective” and (as a drunken helicopter pilot) “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” is joining “The Last Witch Hunter,” according to TheWrap.com.
He will star alongside lead Vin Diesel, Michael Caine, Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood in the movie that will start shooting in Pittsburgh soon and be here for months.
Here is the description from DreadCentral.com:
Five hundred years ago, war raged between humankind and witches, vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe, including Kaulder (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay an all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments before her death, the Queen exacted her revenge by cursing Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Kaulder has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones.
